Despite A Public Holiday Tomorrow In UP, Banks To Remain Open
Lucknow, Nov 9 (TNA) The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday clarified that banks in Uttar Pradesh will remain opened on Wednesday. There was widespread confusion amongst the people and the elite whether the public holiday declared by the government on occasion of ‘Chatth Puja’ will also entail closure of banks.
A government spokesman however clarified that the banks were not included in the holiday announced by the state. UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday had announced a public holiday on the festival of Chatth, observed largely by people of eastern UP and Bihar.
