Consideration of Implementing 5-Day Working Scheme
A 5-day workweek for bank employees has been discussed and demanded. The United Forum of Bank Unions has proposed that a 5-day workweek be used while ensuring that employees have two days off every week. Since May 2021, the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) has begun putting this idea into effect.
Be sure to keep these holidays and weekends in mind when you schedule your bank visits in August 2023. To prevent any problems during your financial operations, it is important to confirm the holiday schedule for your particular state on the RBI website.
