Change Clocks in 2020, 2021, 2022: US, Canada, UK, Australia

Posted On: August 31, 2015

Get ready to spring forward or fall back

Did you know that your team members in India change their working hours to adapt to the time change? That is because India does not observe the time change. If we look exclusively at Indian Standard Time (IST) compared to Eastern Standard Time (EST), when we are in Daylight Saving Time (DST), between March and November, Indian team members working within the U.S.A. EST time zone business hours would come into the office 6:30pm to 3:30am local time IST. When DST ends, and standard time is observed between November and March, Indian teams working in EST business hours would come to the office between 7:30pm and 4:30am local time IST. I have calculated a 9 hour shift to allow for a one hour lunch break. 

The chart below provides information on the time change for the USA and Canada.
