Bank holidays are determined by the Government of Jammu & Kashmir in conjunction with holidays approved by the Indian government. On bank holidays, government offices, schools and even some businesses are closed with employees provided paid days off to celebrate the holidays. Because Jammu & Kashmir has a large Muslim population, some holidays are subject to the appearance of moon.
