Daylight Savings Time

  • Recently Lebanon saw mass Confusion after its government decided to delay DST by a month.
  • Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of turning the clock ahead as warmer weather approaches and back as it becomes colder again.
  • The daylight saving time is followed in over 70 countries on various dates.
  • India does not follow daylight saving time as countries near the Equator do not experience high variations in daytime hours between seasons.
    • However, people of the North east have demanded a separate time zone to make up for the loss of daylight hours due to the longitudinal breadth of India.
