Peoples of Bangladesh are not familiar with Day Light Saving Time (DST) at all. During last few month, when DST time was running, people were very much confused on it. I am talking about the general people of Bangladesh who were confused even some of them are angry. But we, the administrator on different network including Internet network, Airlines or any other work where time synchronization with other countries of world is in deep problem as Government of Bangladesh couldn't properly notify or verify the change on GPS authority or any other International Time Service authority.
Today, 1st January 2010, NTP servers around world including NTP server of NASA is still providing DST time. I am surprised to see how a Government of a country dose this type of stupid job.
Only one thing giving us hope that Bangladesh Government has decided the fixed Day Light Saving Time period. On December 24, 2009, the Bangladesh cabinet approved the proposal to end DST on December 31. The approval was given at a cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister's office, with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.
DST Schedule of Bangladesh for 2010
The clock will again be put forward by one hour from March 31, 2010, and it will remain so until October 31, 2010. The decision was made in light of factors such as the growing demand for electricity.
In future, we hope Bangladesh Government consider all factor before changing local time and notify proper authority around the globe and ensure the global authority has make proper change on their configuration to provide accurate time via their Time Service in various way.
