November is the month of Diwali and some other festivals. According to the holiday list of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), banks will remain closed for 17 days out of 30 days of the month. If you have any urgent business with your bank, plan accordingly. These 17 days of bank closing include state-specific leaves and the weekend offs.
These 11 off days are a combination of state-specific leaves, religious celebrations and festivals. However, according to RBI’s official classifications the list of holidays is usually grouped under the titles of ‘Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act’ and ‘Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday’ and ‘Banks’ Closing of Accounts’.
In the case of November, most of the holidays come under the ‘Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act’ classification.
