SimpleDateFormat  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yy");
     Date   date = (Date)formatter.parse("29-Jan-02");
    Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
c.setTime(date);
c.add(Calendar.DATE, 1);
String[] timeFields = xtd.split(":");
c.add(Calendar.HOUR, Integer.parseInt(timeFields[0]));
c.add(Calendar.MINUTES, Integer.parseInt(timeFields[1]));

getting below exception

Exception in thread main
java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "Wed Jan 30 00:00:00 GMT+05:30 2002 12:12"



int xtd =1;
 SimpleDateFormat  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yy");
     Date   date = (Date)formatter.parse("29-Jan-02");
    Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
   
    c.setTime(date);
   
    c.add(c.DATE,xtd);

    String estime = c.getTime() + " 12:12";
   
    Timestamp x=      new Timestamp(new SimpleDateFormat("ddMMMyy HH:mm").parse(estime).getTime());
    System.out.println(x);

You don't need to do any formatting/parsing if the source of the Date is the Calendar
