You should be able to use the DateTime types Parse() method:
DateTime dt = DateTime.Parse("2013-09-29T10:21:25.078Z");

Open in new window

Try this:

DateTime dateTime = DateTime.Parse("2013-09-29T10:21:25.078Z");

Thanks for your valuable suggestion.
I have tried your solution but it should be return 29/09/2013 15:51:25.
But i need following format in C# and assign to DateTime variable.

Have a go with this.

DateTime dt= new DateTime();
String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy}", dt)

Happy coding.

Thanks to all for participation.

Actually the problem was due to DateTimeKind property. Once set to appropriate for UTF, the vendor API had accepted the value automatically.
