Changing Timezone through Update meeting API is not working properly - Recurring meeting

I created a recurring meeting today at 8 AM Kolkata time and then updated it to 8 AM Vancouver Time… Create meeting successfully created the meeting at 8 AM Kolkata which is correct, when I give the update to change the meeting to 8 AM Vancouver, It does not do that and changes the time of meeting according to timezone selected first. This is the case with any timezone change, It does not change that properly…

Please see my attached data below.

Request 1 to set timezone to Asia/Kolkata:

{"topic":"Occurrence edit","agenda":"","type":8,"start_time":"2020-08-25T08:00:00","timezone":"Asia\/Kolkata","password":"","duration":30,"recurrence":{"type":1,"end_date_time":"2020-08-31T08:05:27Z","repeat_interval":1},"settings":{"join_before_host":false,"host_video":false,"participant_video":false,"mute_upon_entry":false,"approval_type":2,"meeting_authentication":false,"waiting_room":false,"auto_recording":"none","registration_type":1,"alternative_hosts":""}}

Request 2 to update timezone to America/Vancouver:

{"topic":"Occurrence edit","agenda":"","type":8,"start_time":"2020-08-25T08:00:00","timezone":"America\/Vancouver","password":"","duration":30,"recurrence":{"type":1,"end_date_time":"2020-08-31T20:35:27Z","repeat_interval":1},"settings":{"join_before_host":false,"host_video":false,"participant_video":false,"mute_upon_entry":false,"approval_type":2,"meeting_authentication":false,"waiting_room":false,"auto_recording":"none","registration_type":1,"alternative_hosts":""}}

The same thing happens in your Zoom Dashboard as well. See the video:

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?
