Mumbai Time Now
Mumbai time zone uses the Indian Standard Time (IST). Mumbai is the commercial capital of India and is one of the most populated cities in the world. It does not follow the Daylight Saving Time (DST) but operates on a single time zone. It is situated at UTC + 5:30 which means that Mumbai time is 5:30 hours ahead of the Coordinated Universal time.
The Indian Standard Time is sometimes referred to as Indian Time. The cities in India and Sri Lanka are the regions that use the Indian Standard Time. The addition of one second on IST was meant to synchronize with the universe rotational clock.
Mumbai has been using the IST time zone since the 20h century. There are five atomic clocks that are controlled by the NPL. It is an ancient laboratory that is responsible for making adjustments to the Indian clock. The addition of a second is of great concern in the field of communication, astronomy, and navigation.
However, it has no significant impact on people's daily life. Sri Lanka and other cities in India such as Mumbai follow the Indian Standard Time (IST) without switching to the standard of the Daylight Saving Time (DST).
