Ans: Kohima and New Delhi both are the cities of India. There is only one standard time for the country. Which is 82°30’E. That is why all the areas of the country follow the 82°30’E longitude to maintain their time. So, while the sun rises earlier in the east, say Nagaland and also sets earlier, the watches at Kohima and New Delhi show the same time.
