Banking services have progressed completely online in the digital era for the safety and convenience of customers, conducting a banking service such as opening a deposit account, applying for a loan, opening a Demat or investment account, applying for credit cards or cheque books are all now handled and offered through the digital platforms of Indian banks. What's more, you no longer need to remember bank holidays or check your calendar every day to physically visit your bank branch since you can handle all of your banking operations from the comfort of your own home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
However, customers who are not tech astute, such as senior citizens or customers from rural areas, are required to visit their bank branch in order to facilitate and wrap up their desired banking service. As a result, it is important to realize about bank holidays of a particular month before visiting a bank branch in order to avoid unwanted woes. The month of October comes to an end, and in the approaching month of November, let me make it clear that there are a total of 11 bank holidays according to the Reserve Bank of India's Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and apart from that there are a total of 6 holidays which includes Second Saturdays and Sundays.
