Indian Standard Time
INDIAN STANDARD TIME (IST) is the time observed throughout India and Sri Lanka , with a time offset of UTC+05:30 . India does not observe daylight saving time (DSTu) or other seasonal adjustments. In military and aviation time IST is designated E* ("Echo-Star"). Indian Standard Time is calculated on the basis of 82.30' E longitude , in Kakinada , (16°35′N 82°09′E / 16.58°N 82.15°E / 16.58; 82.15 ) which is nearly on the corresponding longitude reference line. In the tz database , it is represented by Asia/Kolkata .

The Central observatory was moved from Chennai to a location at Shankargarh Fort Allahabad district , so that it would be as close to UTC +5:30 as possible. Daylight Saving Time (DST) was used briefly during the China–Indian War of 1962 and the Indo–Pakistani Wars of 1965 and 1971

Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Timezones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (for example Newfoundland Standard Timeis UTC−03:30, NepalStandard Timeis UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Timeis UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones . This also creates a permanent daylight saving time effect

India
INDIA, officially the REPUBLIC OF INDIA (_Bhārat Gaṇarājya_), is a country in South Asia . It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people ), and the most populous democracy in the world. It is bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the southwest, and the Bay of Bengal on the southeast. It shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; China , Nepal , and Bhutan to the northeast; and Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives . India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia . The Indian subcontinent was home to the urban Indus Valley Civilisation of the 3rd millennium BCE. In the following millennium, the oldest scriptures associated with Hinduism began to be composed. Social stratification, based on caste , emerged in the first millennium BCE, and Buddhism and Jainism arose. Early political consolidations took place under the Maurya and Gupta empires ; the later peninsular Middle Kingdoms influenced cultures as far as southeast Asia

Time Offset
The UTC OFFSET is the difference in hours and minutes from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for a particular place and date. It is generally shown in the format ±:, ±, or ±. So if the time being described is one hour ahead of UTC (such as the time in Berlin during the winter), the UTC offset would be "+01:00", "+0100", or simply "+01". Every inhabited place in the world has a UTC offset that is a multiple of 15 minutes, and the majority of offsets (as well as all nautical time zones) are measured in whole hours. UTC is the equivalent to GMT. CONTENTS * 1 Time zones and time offsets * 2 Daylight saving time * 3 See also * 4 External links TIME ZONES AND TIME OFFSETSA _time zone _ is a geographical region in which residents observe the same standard time . A _time offset _ is an amount of time subtracted from or added to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time to get the current civil time , whether it is standard time or daylight saving time (DST). In any particular time zone, residents either observe standard time all year round (as in Russia or South Africa ), or observe standard time during winter and daylight time during summer (as in most of the United States and Europe).

Daylight Saving Time
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (abbreviated DST), also sometimes erroneously referred to as DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME, is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. Typically, regions that use daylight saving time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time. American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin proposed a form of daylight time in 1784. He wrote an essay "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light" to the editor of _The Journal of Paris _, suggesting, somewhat jokingly, that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning, making use of the natural morning light instead. New Zealander George Hudson proposed the idea of daylight saving in 1895. The German Empire and Austria-Hungary organized the first nationwide implementation, starting on April 30, 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, particularly since the energy crisis of the 1970s . The practice has both advocates and critics. Some early proponents of DST aimed to reduce evening use of incandescent lighting —once a primary use of electricity —today's heating and cooling usage patterns differ greatly, and research about how DST affects energy use is limited and contradictory

List Of Military Time Zones
This is a LIST OF TIME ZONES as used by the U.S. military , Chinese military and others. The letter names are those of the NATO phonetic alphabet (though with "Alpha" instead of "Alfa"). Going east from the prime meridian at Greenwich, letters Alpha through to Mike (skipping "J", see below) are used for the 12 time zones with mainly positive UTC offsets until reaching the International Date Line. Going west from Greenwich, letters November through to Yankee are used for zones with negative time offsets. The system originates with Nathaniel Bowditch 's 1802 _American Practical Navigator _ where time zones were labelled with letters: the letter "J" was skipped to avoid confusion with "I" (as was the custom of the time) and because some alphabets don't have one (such as Cyrillic ). The militaries of Australia , Canada , New Zealand , the United Kingdom , and the United States (also known as Five Eyes ) use Allied Communications Publication (ACP) 121 as their reference for the time zone designators. The letter J ("Juliet"), originally skipped, may now be used to indicate the observer's local time. This is not an international standard, and many locations/fields may not recognize such use. Use of the letter "L" for "local" is a common mistake. The letter Z ("Zulu") indicates Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or Coordinated Universal Time (see UTC±00:00 )

Longitude
LONGITUDE (/ˈlɒndʒᵻtjuːd/ or /ˈlɒndʒᵻtuːd/ , Australian and British also /ˈlɒŋɡᵻtjuːd/ ), is a geographic coordinate that specifies the east-west position of a point on the Earth's surface. It is an angular measurement, usually expressed in degrees and denoted by the Greek letter lambda (λ). Meridians (lines running from the North Pole
North Pole
to the South Pole
South Pole
) connect points with the same longitude. By convention, one of these, the Prime Meridian
Prime Meridian
, which passes through the Royal Observatory, Greenwich , England, was allocated the position of zero degrees longitude. The longitude of other places is measured as the angle east or west from the Prime Meridian, ranging from 0° at the Prime Meridian

Indian Independence Movement
The INDIAN INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT encompassed activities and ideas aiming to end the East India Company rule (1757–1858) and the British Indian Empire (1858–1947) in the Indian subcontinent . The movement spanned a total of 190 years (1757–1947). The very first organised militant movements were in Bengal , but they later took movement in the newly formed Indian National Congress with prominent moderate leaders seeking only their basic right to appear for Indian Civil Service (British India) examinations, as well as more rights, economic in nature, for the people of the soil. The early part of the 20th century saw a more radical approach towards political self-rule proposed by leaders such as the Lal, Bal, Pal and Aurobindo Ghosh , V. O. Chidambaram Pillai . The last stages of the self-rule struggle from the 1920s onwards saw Congress adopt Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi 's policy of nonviolence and civil resistance , and several other campaigns. Nationalists like Subhash Chandra Bose , Bhagat Singh and Vinayak Damodar Savarkar preached armed revolution to achieve self-rule. Poets and writers such as Subramania Bharati , Muhammad Iqbal , Josh Malihabadi , Mohammad Ali Jouhar , Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay and Kazi Nazrul Islam used literature, poetry and speech as a tool for political awareness
