The ministry of home affairs on March 24, 2020, had issued guidelines for essential service providers after PM Modi announced a 21-day lockdown. Banking being a part of the essential service category, the staff of various banks both PSB and private banks have been working through the 21-day lockdown which has been implemented to contain the spread of COVID-19. 

According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) website -- rbi.org.in-- the banks will remain close for a total of 14 days in April 2020. This will include 9 region-specific festival holidays one second-Saturday and four Sundays.

Though all regular operations will remain closed during these 14 days, mobile and internet banking will remain functional as usual. Also, not necessarily ATM machines might disburse cash. So, to avoid such a situation one must keep some cash in case of an emergency.
