Vat Savitri is on 4th June 2016
Vat Purnima or Wat Purnima is a traditional festival celebrated across Indian in different states such as Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab and Haryana. Traditional festivals of Amanta and Purnimanta as per the Hindu lunar calendar occur on the same day. The northern parts such as Madhya Pradesh, Harayana, Bihar, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh of India go in accordance with Purnimanta Calender whereas the southern parts follow Amanta Calender.
However Vat Savitri Vrat could be considered as an exception. In Purnimanta calendar Vat Savitri Vrat is observed during Jyeshtha Amavasya (No moon day) on the 4th of June, 2016 (Saturday). which coincides with Shani Jayanti. In Amanta calendar Vat Savitri Vrat, is observed during Jyeshtha Purnima on the 19th of June, 2016 (Sunday). But Vat Savitri Vrat stands aside. As per Purnimanta calender, this Vrat is followed in Jyeshtha New Moon Day which concurs with Shani Jayanti. Thus, in the states like Maharastra, Gujarat and those of south India, wives follow Vat Savitri Vrat a fortnight later than the married women of northern states.

The next morning women break their fast and offer charity to Brahmins. Women engage in the worship of a banyan (Wata) tree, and listen to the legend of Savitri.
