Bangladesh pushed forward the clock an hour at 11.00pm on Friday night to better utilize daylight and save electricity. That means Bangladesh standard time now becomes GMT+7 from GMT+6
Bangladesh is experiencing severe electricity problems now even in the rainy seasons. Bangla month of Ashar is treated as the month of heavy rain. But there is hardly any rain in the aountry. Temperature is going high day by day and humidity is also high.
Severe load shedding makes life difficult for almost every people accross the country. Power department suggested this daylight saving plan to save at least 5% electricity and ease the perennial power crisis.
The success of daylght savings measures depends on how people adjust to new routines and get rid of habits. If the measures can be effectivly implemented then some electircity might be saved and thus ease the power crisis.
Some other developed countries successfully utilize this kind of daylight saving time. So this daylight saving plan may bring some benefits to Bangladesh as well.
