The Navratri commences on the first day (pratipada) of the bright fortnight of the lunar month of Ashwin.

The festival is celebrated for nine nights once every year during the beginning of October, although as the dates of the festival are determined according to the lunar calendar, the festival may be held for a day more or a day less.

The Navratri commences on the first day (pratipada) of the bright fortnight of the lunar month of Ashwin.

The festival is celebrated for nine nights once every year during the last week of September/ beginning of October, although as the dates of the festival are determined according to the lunar calendar, the festival may be held for a day more or a day less.

The term more or less  is not indicative of ambiguity.

It is because the date varies depending on the fact whether you follow the Solar or the Lunar Calendar, Surya or Soura Manasa, or Chandra Manasa

Now the Kanchi Periyava Forum, dedicated to the Maha Periyavr has provided a Link for an E Book on Navaratri, which is quite informative.

You may download it for reference.

In the Sankalpa make suitable alterations.
