What is meant by local time of a place? How is the standard time of a place different from its local time?
The local time of a place is determined with reference to the position of the Sun in the sky. When all places on the same meridian of longitude have noon, it is considered as their local time.
Some countries have a vast longitudinal extent and thus local time within the country may vary from place to place. Thus a central meridian passing through the country is considered as the standard meridian. The time based on this standard meridian which is adopted for the entire country is known as the standard time.
