Carlsen – Anand time of games (India Standard Time)

Despite its large size, India follows a single time zone, called the Indian Standard Time (IST). IST maintains a 30 minute offset from UTC. This means that when it is 12:00 UTC, it is 5:30 AM anywhere in India. This can be particularly confusing to travelers who are accustomed to integer time zone changes.

All games of the FWCM 2013 Anand – Carlsen begin at 15:00 IST

Other time zones: When in Chennai is 15:00, it is 1:30am in California, 4:30am in New York and Bogota, 5:30am in Santo Domingo, 7:30am in Rio de Janeiro, 9:30am in London and Reukjavik, 10:30am in Prague, Belgrade, Oslo and Paris, 11:30am in Athens and Sofia, 13:30pm in Moscow and Dubai, 17:30pm in Beijing, 18:30pm in Tokyo, 20:30pm in Sydney.
