Devotees who observe fast on this day will be blessed. Lord Ganesha will reduce problems and remove obstacles. Hence this day is called as Sankatahara chaturthi (sankatah means problems).

Devotees believe their wish wil be fulfilled, problems will be reduce and obstacles will be removed. God will bless them with happy life.
