    Solution:

    The longitude of (82° 30' E) is considered the standard meridian in India.
    Each country selects its central meridian. This Meridian local time will be the country's standard time. On different meridians, different standard times are established. Compared to Gujarat, the sun rises about two hours sooner in Arunachal Pradesh. It results in a two-hour time difference between Gujarat and Arunachal Pradesh. To avoid confusion and have a reliable reference time, the Standard Meridian of India, located at a longitude of  82°30'E and passing via Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh, is regarded as our country's standard time.
