The Indian stock market holidays include the national holidays and the regional public holidays. This holiday schedule is quite important for those who are trading through national stock exchanges – NSE (National Stock Exchange) and BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange).
NSE and BSE have five working days a week, i.e., Monday – Friday. All the exchanges remain closed on all Saturdays and Sundays. The equity market trading time is 9:15 AM to 03:30 PM.
