    It is night in India when it is day in the USA.

    It is night in India when it is day in the USA.

    What is the way of saying it properly? "The India's timing is opposite to that of the USA or vice versa".

    Please check.

    Just stick with your original sentence, adding 'and vice versa' if you wish.

    Re: It is night in India when it is day in the USA.

    We just don't say that the time somewhere is the "opposite" of the time somewhere else. Times don't have opposites.

    When it's daytime in the USA, it's nighttime in India.
    It's night[time] in India when it's day[time] in the USA.
    India is 12 hours ahead of California. (I don't know if that's true; I'm just demonstrating the construction.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
