Banks across India will go on a long holiday starting this weekend and going until the next, with just two working days in between.
The long holiday will begin from 28 March and end on 6 April, with one full working day falling on 30, though banks will remain open for half-a-day on 4 April, being a Saturday.
The first day of the long holiday, 28 March is Rama Navami, besides being a Saturday, while 29 March is a Sunday.
The next days – 30 March – will be working day.
The holidays will resume from 31 March, as banks will remain closed for annual closing of accounts on both 31 March and 1 April.
This will be followed with holidays for religious festivals.
On 2 April, banks will remain closed on account of Mahavir Jayanti , the birth anniversary of the last Tirthankara Mahavira. This will be followed by another holiday on 3 April, being Good Friday, that commemorates Jesus Christ's crucifixion.
The holidays on the first three days of April will be followed by half-working day on 4 April being a Saturday, with a holiday again on 5 April, being a Sunday.
