It runs at TZ set at system boot.

Users can set own TS's

crontab command line tool does TZ calculations, so users use their TZ.

So it will take TZ value and run according to that. Hope i am correct?

It will perfectly obey TZ value... i.e. even when cron runs in one timezone, user can correctly submit jobs in another.
