Dear Readers

 

We are helping you always for preparation of Bank exams on each and every point so that you can secure more and more numbers. Most of the times, questions found in exams for days viz observance. E.g., what is observed on 1st Jan – then the answer will be New Year’s Day.

 

Hence, it is very hard to remember and found what and when the days are observed. So for your convenience we are providing the list which is used by various governments, groups and organizations to raise awareness of an issue, commemorate a group or event, or celebrate something.

List is as follows:
