Here is a list of public holidays in 2022
This year we see a lot of holidays across the country. Although the number of holidays does not differ from state to state, holidays do differ based on festivals or events in each state. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has already provided its list of public holidays for this year. In April alone, banks will remain closed for four days in a row. The RBI prepares the list of public holidays based on festivals and public holidays in each state or region and publishes the schedule at the beginning of each financial year.
