Description Russell John 2009-06-04 04:05:28 UTC
Bangladesh introduces DST for the first time, setting the clocks head for an hour from 11 PM, June 19, 2009.

Timezone should therefor be changed to GMT +7 from current GMT +6 for Asia/Dhaka from above mentioned date.

It is however undecided how long this will be in effect, but estimated to be till September 30, 2009, just before the winter.
