UK time zone could get updated in 2019 – Times
The UK could move to a new time zone in 2019, according to Timmy Mynett.
The Times of India reports that a report from the British Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport reveals that the UK is looking at relocating from Greenwich Mean Time to GMT+1, which would mean the UK would be able to be part of an online-only time zone system.
It is not yet clear what the new date would look like, but it is likely that the new system would include a standard time zone to match the existing UK time.
The UK is the second country in the world to announce a move to GMT+1 this year.
India announced that it would be using GMT+2 to run its own time zone on April 19, 2019.
The UK Government’s decision to adopt GMT+3 on July 1, 2019 will likely come as a surprise to many, as the current standard time in the UK currently is GMT -1.
In the UK, the current official time zone is Greenwich Mean Universal Time (GMT-1).
In India, GMT+4 is the time zone currently used for all time zones in the country, with GMT+5 being used for GMT+6 and GMT+7 for GMT+.
GMT is the standard time throughout the world, so it is not unusual to see the country move to an international standard time as well.
The timing for the UK moving to a time zone will be announced in 2019.
