Can you use net banking on bank holidays?

Yes, even when bank branches are closed for customers to visit, you can still use online banking mode. When bank branches are shut, you can use the Internet, mobile applications, and ATMs. Although, in case you need assistance from bank staff, you will not be able to do so in case of a banking holiday. For this, you will have to prepare for in-person visits as per the state-specific holiday list.

What about weekend holidays as per the RBI?

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) designates holidays under the Negotiable Instruments Act, Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) holidays, and Banks' Closing of Accounts but they may differ from state to state. As per this, banks are closed on Sundays and the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. The first, third and fifth Saturdays of every month are working Saturdays for banks.
