[tz] Correct timezone for the country of India

       I was browsing through the tz database and I don't see a single city
in the country of India for the timezone setting. Would you enlighten me as
to why it is so? I am specifically looking at this:


Could you please add "New Delhi" or "Mumbai" to the +5:30 UTC timezone

Secondly, what is this "Indian/<island names> ? This is some old relic
information that needs to be updated. None of those island have anything to
do with India, so why keep the naming convention?

I did go through one discussion in your achives:
http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2012-December/018488.html, but I couldn't
see any reason why Mumbai or New Delhi cannot be added. I also could not
find Asia/Calcutta in the list on current tz database. If I'm reading this
wrong, please point me to the correct link.

Thank you.
