Bank Holidays in September 2022: The new month of September has begun already, and from September 1, there will be a new set of bank holidays that will come into effect. There are 13 bank holidays in September. However, it must be noted that many bank holidays are regional and may differ from state to state and bank to bank. The bank holidays in August have come into effect as per a list prepared by the Reserve Bank of India, or RBI.
The RBI prepares a list of holidays every year, according to which they come into effect. The banking regulator has notified the holidays for lenders under three brackets — the Negotiable Instruments Act, Holiday, Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday, and Banks’ Closing of Accounts. All banks including the public sector, private sector, foreign banks, cooperative banks, and regional banks across the country will remain closed on these notified holidays.
Out of the 13 bank holidays in September, six are weekend leaves. There are eight regional holidays whereby lenders in some specific areas remain closed due to occasions in that particular areas. While on adding up the two, we will see there are 14 bank holidays, it should be noted that one of them is on September 10 — the second Saturday of the month. Therefore, this holiday is clashing, making it 13 bank holidays in September.
