Is there PHP web service to display the IST date and time?

I need a php web service to display  the IST time. In my website the date is often changed, So I could not either convert them to my IST date and time or display the current date and time?

Thanks for the reply. I have already this code and displaying the IST time. My actual problem is the server GMT time gets varies every day. It is not reliable ... as i am using shared hosting.. very difficult to explain this problem to them... also they just reset and again the problem arise ... so i  don't want to depend on them ... that is why i want to access the web services....

any ideas?

It looks like http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/asia/india/time.htm is doing what you want.  Why not CURL that page?  Or better yet, contact them and ask how they sync the time.
