Shri Bhaskarji may very well know that in Bengaluru-Mysuru region, the oNTi-koppal Panchanga enjoys similar repute and many people strictly follow it, without paying attention to other panchangas.

Yes prabhuji, Onti koppal will be followed by most of the people here, though madhvA-s and sri vaishNava-s have their own panchAnga to follow.  Sometimes there is a difference between Onti-koppal and Sringeri panchanga with regard to sUryOdaya, sUryAsta as a result difference in timing and duration of rAhu kAla etc., end timings of nakshatra / tithi etc.  In all those cases, in our circle most of the people attach more credibility to Ontikoppal and follow it.  It is because of this reason most of the priests used to utter last year's saMvatsara nAma as 'heviLambi' though there is specific clarification in sringeri panchaga that it should have been : hemalaMba. :-)

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
