Daylight saving time was cancelled and now residents of Azerbaijan do not have to wind their clocks forward or backward.

Following the cancel of biannual time changes in the country, experts recommended to make changes in working hours.

The country was expected to switch to summer time by setting the clocks one hour forward at 04:00am on March 27, Sunday.

On March 17, the Cabinet of Ministers decided to cancel the practice after recommendations of the Azerbaijani National Academy of Sciences.

ANAS Economic Institute head Pasha Tanriverdi suggests to define the beginning of the working day at 08.30 a.m. and the end at 05.30 p.m., instead of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., respectively.

To determine the working time it’s necessary to take into account the "day-night" symmetry for the daylight, according to the scientist.
