creating the indian time into your table is easy enough, though the links mlmcc pointed to show the problems with day as well. Though not such a problem for your location.

what 'content' do you need converted ?  Are you after a lookup table or a script to modify data ?
Option Explicit

Function MakeIndiaTime(offsethours As Integer) As String

    Dim indiastart As Date, indiaend As Date
    Dim localstart As Date, localend As Date
    indiastart = TimeSerial(9, 0, 0)  '0900 am
    indiaend = TimeSerial(18, 30, 0)  '1830 = 6.30pm
    localstart = indiastart + TimeSerial(offsethours, 0, 0)
    localend = indiaend + TimeSerial(offsethours, 0, 0)
    MakeIndiaTime = Format(localstart, "HH:nn") + " - " + Format(localend, "HH:nn")
End Function

What San Jose are you referring to?
If it is the one in California (US) it should be 7:30PM (previous day) - 5:00AM
India - GMT+5:30
San Jose California (US) GMT - 8:00

So India to San Jose California (US) is India - 13.5

ya its the san Jose you are referring

When its 9.00 AM in India whats the time in San Jose?

is the excel out right?

How is the Offset parameter set?

Need to subtract 5:30 from it.

If the India Time is India local you have to account for the India differnece with GMT.  The offsets in the spreadsheet are off GMT.
