Two hours difference between time zones of Arunachal and Gujarat (difference of 30 Deg longitude). Each longitude has time diff of 4 min, making it 120 min or 2 hrs difference. But we have only 1 IST (Indian standard Time) unlike in US where there are multiple timezones. From Gujarat to Arunachal Pradesh there is a time lag of two hours, but the watches show the same time because the time along the Standard Meridian of India (82° 30' E) passing through Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh is taken as the standard time for the whole country. Because the same standard time for the whole country has been adopted, the watches show the same time in Arunachal Pradesh and Gujarat and in all parts of the country.

There is two hours difference between time zones of Arunachal and Gujarat (difference of 30 Deg longitude). Each longitude has time diff of 4 min, making it 120 min or 2 hrs difference. But we have only 1 IST (Indian standard Time) unlike in US where there are multiple timezones
