There's a PDF file at...
...(a Bangladesh government site) that does include "10:59" and "11:59" in the text.
Can anyone on the list provide a good translation?

We received a report from Bangladesh saying that the start/end of
Bangladesh DST is incorrect. Currently we have only the Bengali version
of the official mail from BTRC which describes the following:

"From 2010 each year when local standard time is about to reach
March 31 at 10:59:00 PM clocks are turned forward 1 hour (11:59:00 PM)
and when local daylight time is about to October 31 at 11:59:00 PM
clocks are turned backward 1 hour (10:59:00 PM)."

So, DST will start/end 1 minute earlier.

Best regards,
