Why do we use standard time? Explain with an example from India.


We know that places located on different meridians have different local time. It would create a lot of difficulties, if a country adopts different local time.

For example, India lies between 68° 7’E and 97° 25’E longitudes. Thus, the people of India have to face problems of different local times. So, to avoid this problem and maintain its uniformity all over. a country, the standard time is used.
