With festivals such as Diwali and Chhath Puja scheduled to be observed in November, banks across the country will be closed for a total of 17 days next month, including on Sundays and second and fourth Saturdays. The holidays are observed as per a list released by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), which the central bank issues under the following three categories: Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act, Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday, and Banks' Closing of Accounts.
