Almost all the trains (Except EMU/ MEMU) in our country usually have their arrival/ departure time at source/ destination stations in round figures. For example, the time may be 10:10, 10:15 etc, but not in formats like 10:08, 10:17 etc. Why is it so?

Bcoz people can have an exact measure of their arrival/departure time and it also looks nice to have it in 0's or 5's instead 1s , 2s , 3s , 8s , 9s etc. But if halt times are 1/2/3 mins , it is not uncommon to see other numbers as well.
