A question says that
" Why is 82 degrees 30 minutes east is called as the standard meridian of India"
Our Geo. teacher gave us the answer in which a sentence says
"it is divisible by 7 degree 30 minutes which is ideal for the calculation of this on the basis of meridian"
Please can u tell me what message our teacher wanted to convey



The Brainliest Answer!
The local times of places which lie on different meridians are bound to differ. The sun rises two hours earlier in Arunachal Pradesh as compared to Gujarat in the west. This causes a time lag of two hours from Gujarat to Arunachal Pradesh. To avoid confusion due to time differences and to have a standard time for reference, the time along the meridian (82° 30 ' E) passing through Mirzapur (Uttar Pradesh) has been taken as the standard time for the entire country. This is why the watches show the same time.please do rate it Posted by Ariba Fatima(student), on 2/5/13
