If you are in IST and would like to contact or set up meetings in EST, you will have to work outside of your typical work hours as the work hours do not overlap due to the large time difference.
Therefore, those in IST will have to make arrangements between 7:30pm and 4:30am because these are the typical, 9:00am to 6:00pm, working hours for those in EST.
Those in EST on the other hand, looking to contact those in IST, will find it best to schedule meetings between 10:30pm and 7:30am as that is when they will most likely be at work as well.
