Bank Holiday in January 2020 in India. This is a list of all bank holidays, provided states-wise for the month of January 2020.

People are curious about the bank holidays in the first month of the New Year 2020. In India, banks are closed mostly on public holidays and the other holidays are state-specific, depending on where the event is mostly celebrated and in which part of the country.

In the recent updates, the ten centre trade unions went on a general strike on 8 January 2020 against the anti-labour policies of the government due to which banks in some cities will be closed on 8 January 2020.

As India consists of people from various communities, religions, cultures etc, some events or celebrations are celebrated ecstatically among that particular group only. Other communities also enjoy celebrating it but the holidays are only provided to that specific region or state. For example, Pongal festival which is mostly celebrated in the southern region of India, a bank holiday is provided for this particular festival only to the southern states of India like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh etc.
