News About List of Holidays – Government, Bank and Public Holidays in India

  • All India bank strike proposed on 22 October

    An all-India bank strike has been proposed on 22 October by two of the leading bank employee unions. These are the Bank Employees Federation of India (BEFI) and the All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA). The objective of the strike is to oppose the merger of 10 of the state-run banks into four banks. State Bank of India (SBI) stated that its operations would not be affected by the strike as most of its employees are not members of these two unions. However, Syndicate Bank, Bank of Maharashtra, Oriental Bank of Commerce, and Bank of Baroda have stated that their operations would be affected due to the strike. Some of the other demands of the two unions are job security, action on defaulter charges, recovery of bad loans, and protest against the high service and penal charges for customers. The proposed merger would reduce the number of public sector banks from 27 to 12. Some of the mergers are Andhra Bank with Union Bank of India and Corporation Bank, Canara Bank and Syndicate Bank, Indian Bank and Allahabad Bank, and Punjab National Bank with Oriental Bank of Commerce and United Bank of India.

    In West Bengal, holidays for State Bank of India run from 5 October to 8 October while in Tamil Nadu it is closed on 7 October on account of Ayudha Pooja. Some banks may also be closed on 28 October and 29 October on account of Diwali and Bhaidooj respectively.

  • Planned bank strike on September 26 and September 27 called off

    The bank officer’s union has deferred the planned 2-day bank strike after discussions with the government. The government has provided assurances that their concerns will be looked into. Four unions had called for a strike on September 26 and September 27 after the government announced that 10 public sector banks will be merged to 4.

    According to a statement issued by the bank unions, the strike was deferred as the Finance Secretary was positive in the formation of a committee to look into the concerns of the bank unions. The four unions that called for a two-day strike were the National Organisation of Bank Officers (NOBO), Indian National Bank Officers’ Congress (INBOC), All India Bank Officers’ Association (AIBOA), and All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC). The strike was deferred after representatives of the four unions met the Finance Secretary Rajiv Kumar, who gave them positive feedback regarding the formation of Committee to look into their concerns. Banking activities will not be affected on these days since the strike has been called off. In case the planned strike had gone ahead, banks would have remained closed for four days in a row as the two days following the strike were the fourth Saturday and Sunday.
