DISCUSSING A SEPARATE TIME ZONE FOR EASTERN INDIA



Why Consider a Separate Time Zone?

To leverage daylight savings and optimize daylight hours, potentially improving productivity and energy savings.

What Regions Would Be Affected?

Eastern states like West Bengal, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, and others.

Potential Benefits?

• Improved Daylight Utilization: More effective use of daylight hours.
• Energy Savings: Reduced electricity consumption during evenings.
• Enhanced Productivity: Better alignment with natural daylight, potentially improving work and school efficiency.

Possible Drawbacks?

• Coordination Issues: Challenges in synchronizing activities across different time zones.
• Economic Impact: Potential disruptions to business and communication with other parts of the country.
• Implementation Costs: Expenses associated with transitioning to a new time zone.

Is It Feasible?

A detailed study and public discourse are necessary to weigh the potential benefits against the challenges.
