Additionally there will be three bank holidays – January 1, May 6 and July 1 – this year. Banks will remain closed on the three days for the public, but not for employees.

“The holidays for Muslim festivals are subject to appearance of [the] moon for which a separate notification will be issued,” the notifications reads.
