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.
Madhya Pradesh bank holidays are days when most of the public and private sector banks remain closed. However, you can still perform certain banking transactions online on MP bank holidays. All Sundays are bank holidays in MP. Second and fourth Saturdays of the month are also considered as bank holidays in Madhya Pradesh for 2022.
