Most any time client is going to give you the time at GMT.  You then need to adjust your client settings for the timezone you are in.  If your client doesn't allow this, then it is the most ridiculous NTP client ever made.  There are plenty of freeware clients out there, and if you do a bit of searching, you should be able to find an acceptable one.

Hi all,
  thanx to scraig84 and sysExpert, actually the problem is, i didnt set the correct time zone, that's why i got the problem.
   
   actaully the file "/etc/sysconfig/clock"
   should look like

   ZONE="Asian/Calcutta"
   ...
   ...

   But for it WAS ...
   ZONE="US/Eastern"
   ...
   ...
  thats why i got that problem.
   
  can u tell me, how can i delete or remove the question,
else someone may try to answer the question.

  thanx again.
