Longitude of New York = 75°W

Longitude of Madras = 80°E

Difference in degrees = 75° + 80° = 155° 

Difference in time per degree = 5 minutes 

The time in New York is UTC-4 from March to November and UTC-5 from November to March. The time in India is UTC+5:30. 

Therefore, when it’s 3 PM Indian Standard Time, the time in New York is either 4:30 AM EST or 5:30 AM EDT, depending on the date.

Happy Diwali Wishes
