We must first understand the Indian calendar’s structure in order to fully explain it.

The luni-solar system serves as the foundation for the Shaka Calendar, which is used in India. Although there are local variations, the 12 months and 365-day rule is still followed. When it comes to the Indian calendar, the month names do, however, differ. For instance, Chaitra is the first month and Phalguna is the last in the Indian calendar. People use these names to help themselves if they are uncomfortable with or are simply unaware of the standard January and February names. This variant is employed, particularly in rural areas, to locate Hindu festivals in 2022.

The 12 months as per the luni solar calendar are

  1. Chaitra
  2. Vaishakha
  3. Jyeshtha
  4. Ashadha
  5. Shravana
  6. Bhadra
  7. Ashwin
  8. Kartika
  9. Agrahayana
  10. Pausha
  11. Magha
  12. Phalguna

While events like Independence Day, Republic Day, Gandhi Jayanti, etc. have set dates in the Indian festival calendar for 2022, religious festivals, on the other hand, are dependent on the motion of the Sun and Moon. When deciding where to place a festival in the calendar, astrologers take into account the Moon’s and stars’ positions in the night sky. The Eid festival, which is solely dependent on moon sightings, serves as a good illustration of this situation.

India Lunar calendar

The lunar calendar serves as the basis for the majority of Indian holidays. The moon’s position in the night sky serves as the sole basis for the lunar calendar. Festivals like Eid, Shivaratri, Karwa Chauth, etc. are caused by the motion of the Moon. It’s interesting to note that even India’s National Sanskrit Day is observed based on the moon’s position. The Shaka calendar, the official calendar of India, is made up of two parts: the lunar calendar and the Shaka calendar. We must also examine the solar calendar in order to fully understand the Shaka calendar. The Shaka calendar is an amalgamation of the solar and lunar calendars.

Solar calendar

Next, we have the solar calendar. A solar month, though, is 30 days long, however, when we compare it to the Gregorian calendar, the start of the month in the solar calendar does not coincide with the Gregorian calendar. Indian Calendar, as per Solar month, is given below, which describes the Hindu months and their Gregorian dates. Below dates approximately correspond with the Gregorian calendar, based on the position of the Sun. The table is provided for you for reference purposes.

Solar Month Approx Greg.Date
Caitra March 14
Vaisakha April 13
Jyestha May 14
Asadha June 14
Sravana July 16
Bhadrapada August 16
Asvina September 16
Kartika October 17
Margashirsha November 16
Pausa December 15
Magha January 14
Phalguna February 12


The Shaka calendar, which is the official calendar of India, is what we get when we combine the lunar and solar calendars. Additionally, a list of the festivals for 2022 is created using the Shaka calendar.

The Shaka calendar is a manifestation of India’s diversity. It demonstrates the nation’s proclivity for upholding the fascinatingly still-existent ancient traditions and beliefs.
