Time Correction

This program does NOT automatically make adjustment for Time Changes such as WAR TIME or DAY LIGHT SAVING ( DST) Time or any other Time Changes.

What is WAR TIME

During second world war the clocks were advanced by one hour . This system of time was observed by many countries at that time.

What is DAY LIGHT SAVING TIME ( DST )
During the summer the clocks are advanced by usually one hour for purpose of day light saving.  Today approximately 70 countries utilize Daylight Saving Time in at least a portion of the country.

What you should fill in the TIME of Birth field.

For births  in India :  If the  birth year is after 1945, you may enter the birth time as it is with out making any corrections.

For births  in USA :  From 1967 onwards most of the USA started observing Day light Saving Time beginning at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday in April and ending at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday in October. Time reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October.
Therefore, if the reported birth time is a DST time, you should make necessary time corrections ( usually minus 1 hour )  from the reported birth time.
Example :
Place : Atlanta, USA  , Date of Birth : Sept-1-2004, Time of birth : 7.30 am ( EDT - Eastern Daylight Time)
Correct time of birth for the purpose of horoscope would become : 7.30 am - 1 hour = 6.30 am.


Fortunately a great deal of information pertaining to Time changes in various countries down the years is available on the web.Below is a short list of some cities of the world where Day Light Saving Time is currently observed or not observed.
