As per the Hindu traditions, Karwa Chauth fasting is done during Krishna Paksha Chaturthi in the month of Kartik. In Gujarat, Maharashtra and Southern India, the Amanta calendar is followed, therefore Karwa Chauth in these states is observed in Ashwin month. However, it is just the name of the month which differs, Karwa Chauth is observed on the same day across the country.
