hello, i'm not sure what is it that you refer to as mathematical 
correctness, so here goes;

the indian sub-continent has a majority of it's landmass falling 
in-between +0500 and +0600, with bombay (extreme west) being very close to 
+0500 and kolkata (extreme east) being very close to +0600.
+0530 almost passes through the middle of the country, and is very close 
to delhi.
delhi is more populous than kolkata.
(new) delhi is also the capital of india.

hope this work for you.
