What is Garden Time?

Geographically, there is a two-hour difference of sunrise between the eastern most and the western most corners of India. Till the early 1990s, tea gardens in Assam followed “Garden Time” which was set by advancing the clock by one hour ahead of the IST. “The Garden Time” was introduced by British tea planters to capitalise on daylight. The system was no longer in practice.
