Can anyone let me know how to change UTC time from table column to IST(Indian Standard time) programatically with Datetime format?

I have currently following date time value available in UTC format and i need to convert it into Indian Standard Time in Magento2:

2018-09-18 11:13:07 AM (UTC)

it should convert to IST with following:

2018-09-18 04:43:07 PM (IST)

  • I have tried with following from your mentioned reference: $this->_localeDate->date(new \DateTime($historyDate))->format('m/d/y H:i:s'); but its not converting to IST, don't we need to set timezone anywhere like something? – bhargav shastri Sep 18 '18 at 11:52

Yes you can set timezone from admin panel.

Go to Store->configuration->Genral You will find time zone according to your store you can set timezone.

  • Yes correct but i want to convert my custom date into IST time with datetime format, actually order created date is in UTC timeformat and i want to show it with IST timezone also so that admin can know exact indian standard time with which order was placed. – bhargav shastri Sep 18 '18 at 12:02
  • If you want to do it in custom way then you can use PHP core time/date function.For exmple: $date = new DateTime('2012-07-16 01:00:00 +00'); $date->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone('Asia/Kolkata')); echo $date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s'); // 2012-07-15 05:00:00 This might help you!! – Shubham Khandelwal Sep 18 '18 at 12:10
  • i have tried with above code: $date = new \DateTime($historyDate); $date->setTimezone(new \DateTimeZone('Asia/Kolkata')); return $date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s'); but its not converting to IST as i need – bhargav shastri Sep 18 '18 at 12:21

Finally i got solution below:

$date = new \DateTime($historyDate.' +00'); 
$date->setTimezone(new \DateTimeZone('Asia/Kolkata')); 
return $date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');

this will always convert UTC to IST time
