Is Sankranti on 13th January 2013?

No. However few most circulated Hindi newspapers in North India like Amar Ujala and Hindustan are publishing date of Makar Sankranti as 13th January. We don’t know the reasoning behind it. But according to both Surya Siddhanta and Drik Siddhanta date of Makar Sankranti is falling on 14th January.

Also the official website of Maha Kumbh which is under preview of U.P. Tourism lists Sankranti on 14th January which is also the first day of Shahi Snan at Sangam.

This year Sankranti would occur at 07:03 A.M. on 14th January and Punya Kaal would begin from this moment to sunset. However Maha Punya Kaal would prevail only for 24 minutes just after sunrise.
