It’s important to be aware of the bank holidays in May 2024. Banks will be closed for a total of 11 days, depending on the region. This could cause difficulties for those who need to carry out financial transactions in person. Although many banking services are available online, some transactions may still need to be done at a bank branch. If you have a bank account, it’s important to know the bank holidays so you can plan accordingly.

However, the specific dates may vary depending on your location. Therefore, it’s advisable to plan your banking activities accordingly to avoid any inconvenience. 

Bank holidays are determined by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and include national and regional holidays. While physical branches will be closed, ATMs, mobile & internet banking services, UPI and deposit machines will still be available. Therefore, certain transactions can still be carried out without visiting a bank branch. 

As a responsible bank customer, planning and preparing for bank closures is always better. This can prevent any unnecessary delays or complications in completing important financial transactions.
