The value of the nationwide calendar was again recognized in the Indian Independence motion. On 1st August 1947, the very first National Calendar Bill was passed in the Constituency Assembly. The entire procedure was a continuous one and the federal government lastly released the new national calendar on 7th December 1947.
The Indian traditional system of estimation of the lunisolar days was embraced by the Indian Central Government after the Second World War. The lunisolar method of computation of the days was adopted by the Indian Institute of Technology. In the universities of Delhi and other leading colleges of India, the students utilize the GURP system which is a variation of the lunisolar approach. The GURP system of calculation of days follows the solar calendar really closely. The main advantage of the Indian national calendar system is that it is more accurate than the British system of national Calendars.
