Bank holidays in October 2022: Banks Will Remain Closed For 21 Days

October is a month of festivals in India, which in turn translates to several bank holidays. The Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) holiday list shows that banks will remain closed for as many as 21 days in several states. While some holidays are regional, others, like Gandhi Jayanti on October 2, are national holidays. Bank branches in only certain states remain closed on regional holidays, but national holidays will see banks shut across the country.

Besides this, the second and fourth Saturday of every month is also a bank holiday.
