Indian Standard Time adds LEAP SECOND in 2016
This year will have an extra leap second added to the end of it, making it slightly longer than 2015.
Why is it added?
The Earth’s rotation around its own axis is not regular, as sometimes it speeds up and sometimes it slows down, due to various factors including the moon’s gravitational Earth-braking forces.
As a result, Astronomical Time (UT1) gradually falls out of synch with Atomic time (UTC), and as and when the difference between UTC and UT1 approaches 0.9 seconds, a “Leap Second” is added to UTC through Atomic clocks worldwide.
Since 1972, 36 “Leap Seconds” have been added at intervals varying from six months to seven years.
37th “Leap Second” will be added to UTC at the midnight of December 31, 2016 in the countries within this time zone.
As the “Leap Second” is added simultaneously all over the world at UTC 23:59:59 on December 31, 2016, implying that in India the “Leap Second” will be inserted at IST 05:29:59 on January 1, 2017 (IST being five hours and thirty minutes ahead of UTC).
