Successive holidays for banks – the likelihood of ATMs going ineffective
These are the 2 instances of successive holidays in August.
12th August – 2nd Saturday, 13th August – Sunday, 14th August – Krishna Jayanthi and 15th August – Independence Day (4 successive holidays)
25th August – Friday Vinayaka Chathurthi, 26th August – 4th Saturday, and 27th August – Sunday (3 successive holidays)
The public, on their part, has appealed to the banks to keep sufficient currency in the ATMs on these occasions.
