Look at figure 1.4 and answer the following questions:

Though the distance between them is more why doesn’t the standard time differ in these places?

Answer :

This is because of the adoption of the central meridian of India located in Mirzapur. The time zones were officially established in 1884 during the British Rule. Indian Standard Time was introduced on January 1, 1906. According to this timezone, all the activities official or unofficial take place. The government chooses to keep a single time zone across the whole country despite various requests and proposals to change it.
