Government should take corrective measures to ensure uniform time-zone for the country
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gagoi has ultimately decided to go for a time-zone separated by rest of the country by one hour after the genuine demand of north-eastern states was not taken care of by the central government. System is likely to cause unwanted confusion in a country like India which is not tuned in for a system of dual time-zone.

Demand of north-eastern states was very much justified for better utilisation of day-time energy when sun-rise and sun-set are comparatively much earlier there than rest of the country.

Union government should immediately take remedial measures by advancing time-zone by half an hour for the complete country, also as a compromise-formula for a uniform time-zone for whole of the country including also Assam and other north-east states.

Rather Indian government should approach international authorities deciding time-zones so that time-zone for a country may compulsorily be deviated by full one hour from GMT. Presently India has a time zone of GMT+5.30 hours which should be GMT+6 hours as also recommended by National Institute of Advanced Studies.

India should also take lead in taking up matter of metric-measure of time with concerned international authorities. When all other measures are converted in metric-system from earlier haphazard systems, metric-measure of time has not yet been introduced. Metric unit of time should be introduced with a complete day divided in 10 metric hours instead of present 24 hours.

Each metric hour may have 100 metric minutes with a metric minute having 100 metric seconds thereby making a complete day of 100000 metric seconds instead of present 86400 seconds.
