Before 1979, Daylight saving time was observed in Iran. Thereafter it was abandoned until 1989, when it started on the first day of Farvardin (20–21 March) in the Iranian calendar and ended on the last day of Shahrivar (20–21 September).[1] In the Spring of 2006, the government of Iran ceased observing DST.[2] In September 2007, however, the Majlis (Iranian parliament) passed a law restoring daylight saving time beginning from the spring of 2008, despite opposition by the contemporary government.[citation needed]
