Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ During its regular meeting on February 8, the Cabinet resolved to nullify the previous Cabinet’s resolution No 82 issued on March 9, 2015 regarding Daylight Saving Time (DST).

In accordance with the said resolution, the clocks in Mongolia were set forward one hour on the night of the last Friday of March, and were set backward one hour on the last Friday night of September.

Considering not only the negative side-effects of DST on public health and lifestyle, but also changes made in international flight and train schedules, various organizations used to request for the nullification of the resolution.

Thus, Mongolia will no longer observe time changes this year.
