A couple of possible ways for you to consider:
Set a format for the grid cell that is date only.
Convert to a string and display that rather than a datetime.

Hi codeoxygen,

one suggestion from my side, please retrive only date part from the database.So, it will
display only the date in the grid and it will not display date and default time in grid.

SELECT convert(datetime, '10/23/2016', 101) -- mm/dd/yyyy

for more time format details, please check the link. (you have to in database labels)

Try using the below tag to format while using Eval

<%# Eval("DateTimeField", "{0:dd-mm--yyyy}") %>

<%# Convert.ToDateTime(Eval("Date")).ToString("dd/MM/yyyy") %>

or

<%# Eval("Date","{0:dd/MM/yyyy}") %>
