These seven holidays are based on state-wise leaves, religious events and festival celebrations. Apart from this, there will be 6 weekends as well in the next month that will be included in the list of holidays. Banks will remain closed on September 5, 12, 19, 25, and 26. On September 11 RBI has its mandated leave which is overlapping with the second Saturday. Therefore, the total number of holidays in September will count to 12.

If you are planning to visit the bank next month for paper or transection-related work, keep in mind that none of these holidays is uniform in any way. This means that they are not pan-India, except for the weekends. All the holidays are spread out based on the geography and the dates prescribed by the RBI. Only one holiday will be largely celebrated by the majority of states and cities in the next month which is September 10. It is listed as Ganesh Chaturthi/ Samvatsari (Chaturthi Paksha)/ Vinayakar Chathurthi/ Varasiddhi Vinayaka Vrata.
