For example, bank branches might be closed in Shillong on December 18 for the death anniversary of You So So Tham, but that will not apply to other states. However, there are some days when banks are closed across India. Weekend holidays on the same day will be applied uniformly in all banks across India.
According to RBI norms, public sector, private sector, foreign banks, co-operative banks and regional banks across the country should remain shut on specific dates. The RBI declares holidays for lenders under the categories -- Negotiable Instruments Act, Holiday, Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday, and Bank Account Closure.
