The information that there are 21 holidays for the banks in October has been floating on social networking media!
The bank officials clarified in this regard:
"The bank holidays vary from 1 state to another! In Tamil Nadu, during this current month of October, there are only 3 holidays!
As per this, 4th October (Saraswathi Poojai,), 5th October (Vijayadasami) and 24th October (Deepavali) are the only 3 holidays for the banks. Usually, Gandhi Jayanthi, the 2nd of October is a bank holiday, But since this fell on a Sunday this year, there was no holiday for this!
Farther, the 2nd and the 4th Saturdays of the month are holidays as usual.
