Be it an individual or a large business, everyone needs a bank account. Earlier, people had to visit the bank’s branch for most of the tasks, but not anymore. Now, one can transact online due to digitization. However, some tasks need to be initiated or executed by visiting the bank’s branch. Also, not everyone is used to online banking transactions. In such a situation, if a bank’s branch is closed, people will not be able to perform certain banking transactions. Therefore, one must be aware of bank holidays. For example, if you reside in Bhopal, you should be aware of bank holidays in Madhya Pradesh.
