The essential matter is to get the time synchronization of Country linked communication infrastructures, computer systems and devices to the IST (Indian Standard Time). The competence to demonstrate its sequence of traceability to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) originated by BIPM, with adequate lawful/ governing support. This has an acute share in real-time applications in the critical service sector and to national security. Given the significance of cybersecurity and cybercrime angle developing the formation of Distributed Timing Infrastructures to several critical sectors and customer-centric timing delivery methods is the requirement of time. The International Standards ISO/IEC 18014 under a generally used title of Information technology- Security techniques- Time-stamping services consisting of three parts, including a general notion, time-stamping service model, data structures as well as protocols in its part 1(2008), 2(2008) &3(2009) and Part 4(2015) for Traceability of time sources has been adopted in many countries. It gives a speedy thought to have a precise Nationwide Timing strategy that shall address time delivery services that could be chosen by the wide range of users with an acceptable level of uncertainties

Keyphrases: coordinated universal time, Critical Infrastructure, Cyber Security, Indian Standard Time, legal time, National Critical Infrastructure, National Security, Network Time, Network Time Protocol, stamping service, time source, Time Stamping Service, Time Synchronization, time transfer, time-stamping, Timestamp, Traceability
