What I mean is my windows time is set to local time but when I use any date
function in PHP it shows time in GMT on web browser and to change this I
have to use putenv("TZ=asia/calcutta");


1 There is no problem with Windows time its according to IST.
2 Problem start with PHP, which displays GMT time by default.
3 To solve this I was advised to change the OS time which is already

Now I am not aware how the php date functions picking GMT time and from
