Description:
The timezone offset of 'Asia/Irkutsk' is UTC+8 and there's is no daylight savings time applicable for this timezone. Though mysql still returns results considering "'Asia/Irkutsk'" timezone to be under daylight savings.

Take the following two examples:

Example 1:
select CONVERT_TZ('2019-10-21 10:00:00.0','UTC', 'Asia/Irkutsk') 

Result:    2019-11-21 19:00:00.0
offset: UTC+9

Example2:
select CONVERT_TZ('2019-11-21 10:00:00.0','UTC', 'Asia/Irkutsk') as end_time;

Result:   2019-11-21 18:00:00.0
offset: UTC+8

In the above case mysql is considering 'Asia/Irkutsk' to be a daylight savings city which is not the case now but earlier it used to have daylight savings

Please get this corrected

How to repeat:
Example 1:
select CONVERT_TZ('2019-10-21 10:00:00.0','UTC', 'Asia/Irkutsk') 

Result:    2019-11-21 19:00:00.0
offset: UTC+9

Example2:
select CONVERT_TZ('2019-11-21 10:00:00.0','UTC', 'Asia/Irkutsk') as end_time;

Result:   2019-11-21 18:00:00.0
offset: UTC+8

Hello Mr. Yadav,

Thank you for your bug report.

Your release 5.6.10 is ancient. Please try 5.7.27 or 8.0.17 and let us know if they behave correctly.

5.6.10 was released during the time when your city had daylight saving timezone.
