Time in India
The exact time in India is based on the time zones for India. We will always try to give you the exact time for India. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for India might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in India are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for India, and falls back one hour in the fall for India. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps India to improve its tourism and depend less on India's electricity supplies.
