Apart from the festivals falling in the month, banks may remain shut for three more days due to the bank strike, which might be called by the bank employees over a salary hike demand. So far this year, a strike has been called every month and the same is likely to continue in the month of March as well.

Banks will be closed for 15 days in the month of March including all the festivals and holidays on second and fourth Saturdays and Sundays. However, including the bank strike, the bank holidays will increase to three more days, making it a total of 18 holidays.
