    In these days of computerisation of the banks Half yearly accounting is just a click away! So what is the need for a holiday for account closing as in the good old days? Only a few remotely located cooperative banks might need the day for themselves. They can merrily the day off for customers without affecting the main stream. RBI’s decision is both practical and laudable. However let RBI not come up later with the justification that Oct 2 being a holiday they wanted to keep the intervening two days( Sep30 and Oct1) as working days!
