Important Bank Holidays November 2023

Kannada Rajyothsava: Karnataka Formation Day is another name for Kannada Rajyotsava. It is observed as a public holiday on November 1st each year. This day commemorates the 1956 creation of a single state from the Kannada-speaking areas of southwest India, which were united under the States Reorganisation Act.

Karwa Chauth: Karva Chauth, Karwa Chauth, or Karaka Chaturthi is a celebration observed by Hindu women in Northern and Western India in October or November, during the Hindu lunar month of Kartika. Hindu women fast for the entire day on this day in hopes of extending their husbands’ lives and bringing them wealth and health.

Govardhan Puja:Govardhan Puja, sometimes called Annakut or Annakoot, is a Hindu holiday celebrated on the first lunar day of the light fortnight of the month of Kartika, which falls on the fourth day of Diwali. Worshippers of Govardhan Hill present a variety of vegetarian foods to Lord Krishna.

Diwali: Other Indian religions enjoy Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, in different ways. In a spiritual sense, it stands for the “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.

Bhai Dooj: Hindus commemorate Bhai Tika, also known as Bhai Dooj, Bhaubeej, Bhai Phonta, or Bhratri Dwitiya, on the second lunar day of the Shukla Paksha of Kartika, the eighth month of the Shalivahana Shaka calendar or the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar. It is observed on the occasions of Holi and Diwali, also known as Tihar.
