Ugadi is derived from the Sanskrit words yuga (age) and adi (beginning): "the beginning of a new age". It falls on a different day every year because the Hindu calendar is a lunisolar calendar. The Saka calendar begins with the month of Chaitra (March-April) and Ugadi marks the first day of the new year. Chaitra is the first month in Panchanga which is the Indian calendar. In some parts of India it is known as Vikram Samvat or Bhartiya Nav Varsh
Gudhi Padva (Marathi: Gudhi Padava also known as Ugadhi in Telugu), is the Marathi name for Chaitra Shukla Pratipada.[2] It is celebrated on the first day of the Chaitra month to mark the beginning of the New year according to the lunisolar Hindu calendar. This day is also the first day of Chaitra Navratri and Ghatasthapana also known as Kalash Sthapana is done on this day. The practice of raising the Gudhi was started by Shivaji Maharaj to welcome the new year and symbolizes victory "Vijay Dhwaj". Since then this culture of raising Gudhi's has been followed in and around the strong holds of the Maratha kingdom.

The word (padava) or (padavo) comes from the Sanskrit word (paddava/paddavo), which stands for the first day of the bright phase of the moon called (pratipada) in Sanskrit.

In south India, first day of the bright phase of the moon is called padya(Kannada, Telugu paadyami, Konkani, Konkani Hindus variously refer to the day as (samsara 'padavo/ samsara padye),
(samsara) being a corruption of the word  (samvatsara). Konkani Hindus in Karnataka also refer to it as ugadi.
