Indian Bank Holidays in September 2020


The official list of Bank Holidays of September 2020 has been released by the Reserve Bank of India.

September 2020 is a quiet month for bank holidays in India, with Mahalaya on September 17th, the only day when there will be disruption in more than one state. Other than that, there are couple of religious festivals in the month which may or may not be bank holidays depending on which state you live in. Regional holidays are decided by the respective state governments.

Except for the second and fourth Saturdays and all Sundays, banks will largely be working on all days. 

Though all regular operations will remain closed during these holidays, mobile and internet banking will remain functional on most days. Also, not necessarily ATM machines might disburse cash. So, to avoid such a situation one must keep some cash in case of an emergency.

During the region-specific holidays, banks of that particular region will remain closed while banks on other regions will remain operational.

In total, there are 12 days out of 30 that are affected by holidays.

Here is the list of the bank holidays in August:
