India is geographically spread over 45 Degrees and shall have 3 time zones. Every 15 degrees time shall change by 1 hour. Geography demand us to make three zones, say East[E], Middle or Madhya [M] and West [W]. When it is 08:00 Hrs. in E, it will be 07:00 Hrs. in M and 06:00 Hrs. in W. This is how it should be geographically in India. But we have only one time zone.
Now body clock of 2/3 of Indians is not in sync with nature clock. Loss of so many things. Expert on this can write essay on this...
2/3 of India is wasting light, power, energy and day time saving which is necessary and can save lot of power with daytime. Experts can evaluate better than me and I am sure we will save enough to compensate expected black money from Swiss banks! So lesser Power stations even starts functioning[expected] we will not be short of power. Consider street lights to general transport to anything and everything that has the use of power by any means.
In 1947 or when single time zone was accepted by our government may be we had several things to cope from strategic defence, administration, technology et.al. But now with improved technology and India's own capability as on the day is strong enough to cater any demand by this issue.
What is the reason we are not accepting three time zones?
