Why was the article not changed to "Bikram Sambat" (instead of "Bikram Samwat"), since the article primarily deals with the calendar of that name in Nepal anyway? --SameerKhan 19:49, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
well the default name is Vikram Samvat, nepali speakers cannot pronounce "va" consistently. Bikram samvat is incorrect. either Bikram Sambat or Vikram Samvat should be written, even bengalis and biharis cannot pronounce "va" correctly. king vikramadita is seldomly written bikramaditya hence the default name of the calendar should be "vikram samvat". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:09, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Support as the clear COMMONNAME. Further to the previous figures, 5 of the 6 Google Books hits for "Bikram Samwat" are reprints of Wikipedia, and the other dates from 1977. Google Scholar shows the same picture. Kanguole 02:26, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Why this article list this calendar as lunar calendar? This is a solar calendar and not a lunar calendar.
If it is lunar calendar; can someone explain how it can have months with 31 or 32 days? Also please explain if it is lunar calendar how it is kept in sync with Gregorian Calendar? Nsdeonia (talk) 10:45, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Nepal Vikarm Samvat is not the same is Vikram Samvat in India
The traditional Vikram Samvat in India uses lunar months and solar sidereal year. The Nepali Vikram Samvat is a reformed solar tropical calendar. The article mixes both of them.
