The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has released the list of public holidays for this month. Banks will not operate for a total of 12 days in June in many states across the country. Holidays include every Sunday and the second and fourth Saturdays.
The RBI prepares a list of public holidays every month. Public holidays vary from region to region depending on the festival observed there or notification of specific occasions in those states. Holidays are notified under three categories Negotiable Instruments Act, Public Holiday, Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday and Bank Account Closure.
According to the RBI public holiday calendar for June 2023, banks will remain closed for six days due to regional public holidays this month. These include festivals like Kharchi Puja, Bakri Eid and Raja Sankranti among others. Banks will also not operate every Sunday and second-fourth Saturday in June.
