With Christmas falling on December 25, many are curious about whether banks will remain open during the holiday season in 2023.

According to the Reserve Bank of India’s official list of bank holidays, all banks will be closed nationwide on December 25, Monday, in observance of Christmas. Additionally, December 23 marks the fourth Saturday, a routine bank holiday as per regulatory rules. As December 24 falls on Sunday, the Christmas weekend extends to December 26 and 27.

While the majority of states follow this pattern, it’s crucial to note that some regions celebrate extended Christmas festivities. For instance, Nagaland’s capital, Kohima, will continue its Christmas celebrations on December 26 and 27 (Monday and Tuesday). Similarly, banks in Mizoram’s capital Aizawl and Meghalaya’s capital Shillong will remain closed on December 26 due to prolonged Christmas observances.

Bank holidays vary across regions, with some being observed nationwide and others as local holidays. While most Indian cities will only experience bank closures on December 25, certain northeastern cities enjoy an extended celebration, resulting in a two-day closure.
