The Standard time of Sri Lanka is to be announced at midnight today (11) by the government, making it mandatory to display it as the official time of the country, an official said.

The standard time is being synchronized so as to minimize difficulties faced due to contradicting times being displayed by institutions and persons. The Internal Trade Minister Johnston Fernando authorized a Special Gazette Notification on the Standard time, the official said.

In order to get the Sri Lanka Standard time log in to www.sltime.org. Standard time of Sri Lanka is 5 hours 30 minutes in advance of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). (Daily Mirror online)

    There is no standard at all in Sri Lanka except where government politicians or officials can encroach.

    what are you going to do?

    Anton Monday, 11 April 2011 06:27 PM

    What is the confusion? What has changed? We still follow India and Afghanistan with the 30 minute confusion. I think we should just make it 6 hours difference rather than 5.30 hours. Let India follow us. Yes we can!

    WHO CARES ABT THIS STANDARD TIME?
    WHY CAN'T THE GOVT. MAKE STANDARD PRICE FOR ALL THE ESSENTIAL GOODS. ALL THIS ARE BULL SHIT.

    MAKING ALL THE SRI LANKANS FOOL FOREVER & EVER - THAT'S CALLED CHINTHANAYA.
    WHEN GOODS PRICE UP THEY SAY BCOS OF TERRORISM.
    WHEN PRICES DOWN, THAY SAY IT IS FROM CHINTHANYA.

    WHAT A FUNNY SRI LANKA?
