According to the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) holiday calendar, banks across the country will remain closed for nine days in April due to various festivals and observances. Apart from this, the banks will also not function on the second and the fourth Saturdays in April and four Sundays. This means bankers will have 15 days of holidays.
In such a situation, if you are thinking of going to the bank next month to settle some work, then it is necessary to know first on which days the bank will be closed and why?
Banks will remain closed due to the closing of annual accounts on the beginning of the month, i.e on the 1st of April. At the same time, banks will be closed due to Good Friday on the 2nd. Banks will remain closed on the 4th i.e Sunday. Likewise, on the 10th it is the second Saturday and the next day i.e. 11 April is Sunday.
