As I remember this rule was changed in 2001.

Yes it is correct. However Mongolia is continuing to observe daylight 
saving time since 2001.

Last time the rule was changed in 2001 only. I don't know really
when they will change again the rule. At least I know they will continue it 
this year, since
time is already changed.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

thank you,
