In 2020, banking is digitized. One can transact using internet banking and mobile banking. These features can be used even when the banks are closed. However, not everyone has access to these facilities, especially in rural and tribal areas. Also, some people prefer to visit a bank for basic transactions while some just have to because they do not have a choice. Such people need to be aware of bank holidays as the bank’s branches remain closed during such days. For example, a public sector bank in Guwahati will remain closed on bank holidays in Assam.
