Bank Holidays 2024 – As December 2023 wraps up and we gear up for 2024, it’s good to know about the upcoming bank holidays that could affect our regular banking stuff. Let’s check out the planned holidays for the year and get some handy tips for smooth banking.

According to the law from way back in 1881, the government sorts holidays into three types: those in the law, real-time gross settlement holidays, and bank account closing holidays. Besides festivals and national holidays, there will be 24 Saturdays off during the year, falling on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. If a month has five Saturdays, banks will stay open on the fifth one.

Important national holidays in 2024 include October 2 (Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti), August 15 (Independence Day), and January 26 (Republic Day). On these days, banks across India will be closed. But keep in mind that different states might have extra holidays. For example, Karnataka celebrates Karnataka Rajyotasava on November 1, so banks will be closed in that state. In Maharashtra, banks take a day off on May 1 for May Day or Maharashtra Day.

Remember that the dates for festivals like Diwali and Ganesh Chaturthi may vary from state to state. For those who rely on traditional banking, it’s smart to check with local banks about holiday schedules before planning any visits. Luckily, with the rise of online and mobile banking, you’ve got an easy way to handle transactions.

Online banking, also known as virtual banking or e-banking, lets you do lots of money and non-money activities through a bank’s website. You can do things like National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT), Electronic Clearing System (ECS), Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS), and Immediate Payment Service (IMPS).
