Bank Holidays in September 2021: All private and public sector banks in India will remain closed for up to 12 days in September 2021, including second and fourth Saturdays, and Sundays. Banks will remain close in different states on account of different holidays, apart from six weekly offs.
On account of Ganesh Chaturthi/Samvatsari, banks in most states will observe a holiday on 10 September 2021. Since there are state-specific holidays for different occasions, banks will not be shut for all six days for all states in September 2021.
Notably, there are 13 bank holidays listed but as Ganesh Chaturthi overlaps with second Saturday, it is counted as one holiday. Also, 11 September’s leave overlaps with the second Saturday.
On September 8, only banks in Guwahati will observe a holiday in view of Tithi of Srimanta Sankardeva.
On September 9, banks in Gangtok will remain closed due to Teej (Haritalika).
The Reserve Bank of India has categorised holidays under three categories — Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act; Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday; and Banks’ Closing of Accounts.
