According to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Bhaskarabda (lunisolar calendar) calendar would be used as part of the official calendar in the state. 

According to reports, the decision was made during a meeting of General Administration officials convened by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

The Saka calendar and the Gregorian

The Saka calendar and the Gregorian calendar are currently used by the Assam government. Instead of the sidereal signs used in the Hindu calendar, the Saka calendar uses a lunisolar time tracking method, with the months following the tropical Zodiac signs. The Gregorian calendar is a widely used solar calendar around the world.

The Bhaskarabda calendar, on the other hand, begins with Kumar Bhaskar Barman’s ascent to the throne of Kamrup and differs by 593 years from the Gregorian calendar.

In addition, the government of Assam has decided to publish theme-based calendars every year. Flora and animals, culture, and gastronomy will all be featured in the calendars.
