However to arrive at a more accurate time for your city please note the following.
Navrooz is that exact split second time, when the Sun crosses over from the Southern hemisphere into the Northern.
The timings given in the Tabulation for Indian cities is based on Indian Standard Time, calculated and based on 82.5 degrees East longitude.
(Bombay) Mumbai is about 72.5 deg East and (Calcutta) Kolkatta about 88.2 deg E. Delhi about 77.12 deg E. The Sun takes 4 minutes for every one degree
Hence the exact time should vary from those given for these cities. Check the time in the Fire Temples in Mumbai, you’ll find it is 40 minutes behind the IST.
Similarly (Calcutta) Kolkata 22.8 minutes is earlier than IST, and Delhi is 21.52 minutes behind.
Karachi 67.1 E being further West than (Bombay) Mumbai would be 61.6 minutes behind IST.
You may be able to arrive at a more accurate time for the 3 cities, by adding or subtracting the figures indicated here-in above from the IST time given in the attached tabulation
Check out the correct time for your city rather than go by the Time Zone your city/town falls in. Remember it is 4 minutes plus or minus for every degree that you place longitude and your time zone longitude is based on.
