HF broadcast  service  operating  at  10  MHz  under  call  sign  ATA  to synchronise the  user clock  within a  millisecond

INSAT  satellite based standard  time  &  frequency  broadcast  service  offers  Indian Standard Time  correct up to  ±10 microsecond and frequency calibration up to ±10-10.

The ATA and INSAT systems provide time synchronization and frequency calibration on a continuous basis.

Equipment Used for Calibration The National Physical Laboratory

The time and frequency standards at NPL are maintained with the help of four atomic  caesium standards

Time  and frequency  calibrations are made with  the  help  of  pico-  and  nano-seconds  time  interval  and frequency counters and phase recorders.
