An Updated Share Market Holiday List For 2023

NSE (National Stock Exchange of India) is India’s leading and largest stock exchange. As per the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), it is positioned third in the world in the equity segment. NSE runs daily, from Monday through Friday, except for stock market holidays and weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

A market holiday list is important as trading and investing require careful planning and analysis. Like every year, the list of stock market holidays in 2023 is based on cultural and national holidays. As most investors trade daily, the share market holiday calendar helps them stay up-to-date while planning and executing investment strategies.

Stock Market Holidays List 2023

India is a nation of multiple languages and religions, and the system of holidays is quite complex. A single list of holidays will not work for different segments or industries. Typically, the list of share market holidays is exclusive and updated every year.

As a trader or an investor, you must keep track of the stock market holidays and plan your trading accordingly. The official list of Indian stock market holidays is published on the NSE website at the beginning of every year.

Today, with India’s GDP growth rate of 7.2%, the country has moved up the rankings as the fifth largest in the world. This year is likely to be an exciting year for Indian stock markets. So, if you are a serious investor, you will want to track the stock market holidays to plan and be well-prepared for the entire year.

The NSE offers a wide range of investment opportunities. Thus, prior knowledge of the share market holiday list will help investors make informed investment strategies and stay ahead of the competition.


  1. What time does the stock market open today?

    The stock market opens today at 9:15 AM (Indian Standard Time), Monday to Friday

  2. What time does the stock market close today?

    The stock market closes today at 3:30 PM (Indian Standard Time), Monday to Friday

  3. What happens if a share market holiday falls on the weekly expiry of equity options contracts?

    As per the regulations, when a stock market holiday overlaps with the weekly contract expiry day, the NSE shifts the expiry to the day before the holiday.

  4. What is a settlement holiday?

    In simple terms, a day when the stock markets are closed but investments can be traded in through your online platform is known as a settlement holiday. These are also called transfer holidays.

  5. Can NSE modify any share market holidays after the announcement?

    The stock market holidays 2023 list announced by NSE is subject to change at any time. This is done in advance by releasing a memo with the relevant changes.
