 Coordinated Universal Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Time zones around the world are expressed as positive and negative offsets from UT. UTC differs by an integral number of seconds from International Atomic Time (TAI), as measured by atomic clocks and a fractional number of seconds from UT.
UTC is a hybrid time scale: the rate of UTC is based on atomic frequency standards but the epoch of UTC is synchronized to remain close to astronomical UT.
International standard UTC time can only be determined to the highest precision after the fact, as atomic time is determined by the reconciliation of the observed differences between an ensemble of atomic clocks maintained by a number of national time bureaus.

Explains Dr Lal, ‘‘The international time zone is based on 24 standard meridians and at every 15 deg arc, it moves by one hour, starting from Greenwich meridian comprising of 180 deg west and 180 deg east.
The local time of a country is determined according to the longitude of the place and in India, it stretches to almost 30 degrees, where the longitudinal extent is between 68 degrees and 07 mts to 97 deg 25 mts east of Greenwich.
Another argument against two time zones is that the benefits go to a small proportion of the population in the least developed part of the country, while the huge operational costs and resultant chaos will have to be borne by the whole country.
