All India list of Bank Holidays 2018


(A Combined holiday list for all the states  in India)

This post contains  All India consolidated list of public holidays /Bank holidays with the particulars of festivals/occasions at each state)

Bank holidays in India are declared as public holidays under explanation to section 25 of the Negotiable Instrument Act 1881. The holiday declared under NI Act is applicable exclusively to the banks located within the administration area of specific State and Union Territory.  In other States and Union territories where it is not a holiday, banks remain opened and allow normal banking transaction    similar to any other working days.

We have updated the names of the states that have declared holidays in gazettes or notified by IBA for the calendar year 2018. While preparing this list, some of the states/UTs have not yet published the list of holidays or not available to us for the year 2018 under NI Acts.  In such cases we have shown the dates of some important festivals of local importance as a general information.. We shall include the State’s/Union territory’s name as and when the specific state declares it as a public holiday under NI acts for 2018.
