In October, banks will be non-functional for as many as 16 days on account of festivals, Sundays, and second/fourth Saturdays. Bank holidays are notified by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI); the central bank categorises these as 'national' (all branches closed) and ‘regional’ (for state-specific festivals).
