The significance of the national calendar was once again acknowledged in the Indian Independence movement. On 1st August 1947, the very first National Calendar Bill was passed in the Constituency Assembly. The government immediately began using a precise calendar system based on the British colonial system. This system did not take pleasure in the approval of all the Maharajas of Viceroys. After prolonged debates, the Constituency Assembly approved the new costs on 4th September 1947. The whole process was a constant one and the government finally introduced the new nationwide calendar on 7th December 1947.
The Indian traditional system of computation of the lunisolar days was embraced by the Indian Central Government after the Second World War. The lunisolar method of calculation of the days was embraced by the Indian Institute of Technology. In the universities of Delhi and other leading colleges of India, the students use the GURP system which is a variation of the lunisolar method. The GURP system of computation of days follows the solar calendar extremely closely. The main advantage of the Indian nationwide calendar system is that it is more accurate than the British system of national Calendars.
