Public holidays in July 2022: After a month of fewer public holidays in June, private and public lenders in several parts of India are expected to see a good number of public holidays in July 2022. There are up to 14 public holidays in July this year. July is going to start in a few days which means there will be a new set of public holidays in July which will come into force as per the schedule prepared by the Reserve Bank of India. The RBI prepares a calendar for each month where public holidays are mentioned.
There are 14 public holidays in July, as mentioned earlier, seven of which are weekends. On the other hand, there are eight regional holidays during which lenders in certain specific regions remain closed due to occasions in those particular regions. If we add the two categories, there will be 15 public holidays. However, Bakrid, which is a regional public holiday for Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram, falls on July 9, which is the second Saturday of the month when all banks are closed. Therefore, the July 9 public holiday collides, which means that there are 14 public holidays in July.
Public holidays come into effect according to a list prepared by the RBI each year. This list includes leaves divided into three categories: “Negotiable Instruments Act Leave”, “Negotiable Instruments Act Leave and Real-Time Gross Settlement Leave” and “Close Bank Accounts “. According to the list, different branches remain closed on different occasions, depending on the festival in the area. Apart from this, there are nationwide public holidays, where all private and public sector branches remain closed. Branches of all public sectors, private sector, foreign banks, cooperative banks and regional banks remain closed on public holidays notified by the RBI.
In this regard, it should be noted that the holidays that fall under the negotiable instruments law vary from region to region. Here is a complete list of public holidays in July 2022.
