India, due to its diversified culture and traditions, has a long list of festivals and important days that communities and individuals celebrate. The Reserve Bank of India observes certain days as public holidays and during those days, bank branches remain closed. ATM's remain operational but chances are that if holidays fall consecutively near the weekend, filling up of cash will not be anytime sooner.
