The rising of the Sun in Arunachal Pradesh two hours earlier than in Gujarat causes a time lag of two hours between the two states. To maintain the uniformity in following time, India has chosen the meridian which passes through Mirzapur (Uttar Pradesh) as the Standard Meridian of India (82°30'E). Therefore, the watch shows the same time.
