Would anybody like to discuss the usage of very time? I googled to know about it, but I didn't find anything about. Please, say the proper usage of at this very time/at that very time.

Sorry, no context is available.

    the use of 'very' is simply to emphasize on that exact time. Not a second earlier, not a second later. That exact time. – myselfmiqdad Dec 28 '15 at 6:33

I think "At this very time" means:

At this exact time.

"very" is used for emphasis. So by saying 'at this very time' simply means 'at this exact, precise time'. It means 'now' and the stress is given to show the emphasis on the present time.
