The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) publishes a bank holiday calendar every year.
This calendar states banks in which states will be closed on particular dates. The RBI decides bank holidays in four categories: Negotiable Instruments Act, Holidays, Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday, and Banks’ Closing of Accounts. Besides some national holidays, there are certain state-specific holidays that include Sundays and the second and fourth Saturdays of every month.
