India Bank Holidays for 2018 and 2019

India Bank Holidays for 2018 and 2019


Bank holidays in India vary widely depending on the state. This is because the country is culturally, ethnically, and religiously diverse.

There are 3 holidays in India which are observed throughout the nation. All banks will be closed on these dates. They are Republic Day (January 26th), Independence Day (August 15th), and Gandhi’s Birthday (October 2nd).

Otherwise, banks will be open or closed based on what holidays are celebrated in the state the bank is located in.

There are secular holidays such as New Year’s Day, Hindu holidays like Holi, Islamic holidays namely Eid e Milad, Sikh holidays such as Vaisakhi, and Christian holidays like Palm Sunday.

Call or check the website for the bank to make sure it is open on the day you need to visit. You can also check with the appropriate state government to verify the holidays for the current year.


Below you will find a complete list of the scheduled 2018 and 2019 India bank holidays and the states that observed them.
