Time and date is not working properly

Muhammad Umar Farooq:
Dear Sir,

Thanks a lot  of you for teaching me for resolution of time discrepancy. 

At the moment, the BIOS clock looks like it is set to local time.
Adjust the BIOS clock so that it shows UTC time instead of local time.

The link will show what UTC time is if you need to check.

Once BIOS clock matches UTC, the Linux system will factor in the timezone setting and you should see the correct time for your region when the system is booted.

Muhammad Umar Farooq:
Dear sir,

I have checked my bios setting there is no option RTC OR UTC except date and time. Secondly, I could not add UTC because I did not know much much more iT solution. Kindly, guide me if I can do at my end by scripting command line etc.

Or there is only solution for me to before start my routine work to adjust time manually in system and go on.

Your system is set to interpret the BIOS clock as UTC and is offsetting the system clock for the time zone which means your system clock shows as incorrect.

Try setting your BIOS clock to UTC.

You can get UTC from sites like this.
