Iran Considers Abolishing DST
Iran is considering removing Daylight Saving Time (DST).
Confirmed: Iran Removes DST
The members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly in Iran want to remove Daylight Saving Time (DST) in Iran permanently. On March 15, Iranian lawmakers passed an article repealing the law that governs DST time changes.
The law change needs to be approved by the Guardian Council before it can be signed into law, and with Iran's DST change due in less than a week, it seems unlikely that the law will pass before the time change.
Time in Iran
Unlike most time zones, Iran has a half-hour offset instead of the usual full-hour offset: UTC+3:30 during standard time and UTC+4:30 during summer time.
DST Dates Based on the Sun
DST ends on 30 Shahrivar—the sixth month in the Solar Hijri calendar—equivalent to September 21 or 22 in the Gregorian calendar.
