On the Indian subcontinent, scintillations are quite frequent and intense and have a longer duration during a peak period of an 11-year solar cycle. This phenomenon quite significantly informs us about the performance of the Global Positioning System (GPS). A special experiment has particularly been conducted to study the effect of scintillations on GPS time. This paper discusses the findings of this experiment. A degradation of timing accuracy of the order of 60 ns has been observed.
