New Delhi: In India, banks will be closed for 15 days in July. However, according to the list of holidays released by the Reserve Bank of India, not all the 15 banking holidays will apply to all states and Union Territories (UTs), as banks will be shut for nine days due to regional festivals while they will be shut for six days marking usual weekend holidays. The RBI’s holiday calendar pointed out that certain bank holidays (festive offs) will be restricted to local or regional branches.

However, there are certain festive holidays on which banks across the country will remain shut in July. For instance, on July 21, banks in India will remain closed on the occasion of Eid-al-Adha or Bakrid.
