News About Uttar Pradesh Holidays

  • Bank holidays cancelled during lockdown by Uttar Pradesh government

    The Uttar Pradesh government headed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on 3 April had cancelled the holidays for all banks in the state for Mahavir Jayanti falling on 6 April and Good Friday falling on April 10.

    The cancellation of holidays was done in order to help farmers and workers under the direct benefit transfer scheme by enabling the transfer of funds. Since farmers along with daily wage earners have been provided with financial aid during the 21-day lockdown period, this move can help them get the aid they require without waiting for a longer period of time due to bank holidays.

    Apart from the banks, all government treasuries will also be opened during these two days as the government has cancelled the holidays for them as well.
