Public holidays in July: July has already started and we have gone through the first half of the month, where several holidays in the private and public sector have been implemented. Lenders across all public and private sectors in India are seeing a new round of public holidays in July. The Reserve Bank of India, or RBI, has already released a list of public holidays in July 2022. The central bank prepares a monthly list of public holidays at the beginning of each year, according to which lenders in specific regions remain closed. According to this calendar, there are six public holidays out of the remaining 15 days in July.
It should be noted that many holidays are regional and may differ from state to state and bank to bank. There were 14 public holidays in July, eight of which have been used up. However, some holidays are specific to a region. For example, July 16 is a public holiday in Dehradun, but banks in the rest of the country are open on that day.
The Reserve Bank sets public holidays each year in three categories, including the Negotiable Instruments Act, Public Holidays, Real Time Gross Settlement Holidays, and Close of Bank Accounts. Of these, the categorization “Statutory Holidays under the Negotiable Instruments Act” records the highest number of public holidays. However, public holidays are not uniform across the country under this law. Eight of the July holidays fall under the Negotiable Instruments Act, while the rest are weekend holidays when all banks in India will be closed. Branches of all public sectors, private sector, foreign banks, cooperative banks and regional banks remain closed on public holidays notified by the RBI.
There are still six public holidays left for the remaining 15 days of July. Check them out below.
