Bank Holidays List 2023 on the Second and Fourth Saturdays

In addition to the mentioned bank holidays, banks in India remain closed on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. However, if a month happens to have five Saturdays, the fifth Saturday is considered a working day for banks. It's worth noting that in the past, banks used to operate for only half a day on Saturdays.
