The most popular Chitragupta Puja is observed after Diwali and in 2013 it is on November 5. Chitragupta is believed to be the keeper of the account books containing the good and bad deeds performed by human beings on earth.

Chitragupta was born from the body of Lord Brahma. He is always depicted as carrying a pen and inkpot. Since he was born from the body of Lord Brahma, he was known as Kayastha and in earth he was known as Chitragupt. He keeps the records of good and bad deeds performed by people and informs about it to Yamraj when a person dies and reaches the Yamlok.

The Kayastha community believes that they are descendents of Chitragupta and perform special pujas and rituals on the Chitragupta Puja day.
