New Delhi: The month of August has begun. A number of festivals including Raksha Bandhan and Janmashtami are coming up this month when banks will be holidaying. It is necessary to check the holiday list of the Reserve Bank of India before you get banking related work done. Today we will give you bank holidays in this report. It will let you know how many days and when banks will be holidaying in which state.
While banks have holidays according to each state, there are about 8 days of this month when most of the banks in the country will remain closed simultaneously. For example, on the 15th of August, it is Thursday, but most banks in the country will remain closed on this day due to Independence Day. Similarly, on the 12th of August, that is, Monday it is eid-ul-Juha (Bakried) holiday.
The 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th of August is Sunday, so banks will remain closed like ordinary holidays on these four Sundays.

Banks will be holidaying in Mumbai on August 17 if they talk about holidays other than these 8 days, according to the states.
