Panchang is a Vedic Hindu calendar.

Showing Dina, Nakshtra, Tithi, Yoga, Karana for everyday, with automatic
adjustment for any city in the world.
There are seven types of choghadiya's. Each day is divided into two time periods: daytime - the period from sunrise
to sunset - and night-time - the period from sunset to sunrise. Each period contains eight Choghadiya's. To calculate
the duration of each Choghadiyu, divide the respective time periods by eight. Thus, in each period any one of the
seven different types of Choghadiya's will occur twice.
Example Day 1: Sunrise at 6:39AM and Sunset at 6:25 pm
Day 2: Sunrise at 6:41 am
The daytime period is 11 hours and 46 minutes (706 minutes).
The night-time period is 12 hours and 16 minutes (736 minutes).
Therefore, each daytime Choghadiyu lasts 706/8 = 88.25 minutes = 1 hour 28 minutes 15 seconds.
And each night-time Choghadiyu last 736/8 = 92 minutes = 1 hour 32 minutes.
To determine a good time to commence important works, check the time period between which such work can be
initiated and select a favorable Choghadiyu within that specified time period.
Below shown is the Day Time & Night Time Choghadiya's for the Year 2012:

Amrut, Shubh and Labh are considered the Best Choghadiya's (Time Period)
Chal is considered as Good Choghadiyu (Time Period)
Udveg, Kal and Rog is considered inauspicious
