APS is Going to Kathmandu?

The American Physical Society seems to have farmed out is page proof productions to a company whose employees are e-mailing me from the +0530 timezone --- I didn't know that fractional timezones even existed! They do, and this appears to be Nepal. I guess the APS is pulling a Bob Seger? (I hope somebody understands this reference without looking it up.) Excuse the cynicism, but this is making me think of the customer service stuff.

Importantly, the people working on the page proof of my article that I have in mind have been very fast and efficient about things, but I still find this to be a bit strange.

Update: Alan Champneys tells me that +0530 covers much of India.
