Answered by Amit raj

Salesforce store the time in UTC -5 to ist but when we use apex:outputfield in VF page, Salesforce convert the datetime to based on user locale so you don't need to do anything. If you still have any other use case then I suggest use below code to convert

Use Date.format() method and pass the time Zone. It will convert the time for you

//Get current date time in GMT format
Datetime dt =;
//Convert it into Indian Standard Time(dtIST).
String dtIST = dt.format('yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss', 'IST');
System.debug('dt-' + dt);
System.debug('dtIST-' + dtIST);
