Display Indian current time in PHP

This small snippet explains how to get Indian Time in PHP without changing the server times and timezones. So irrespective of whether your server is in PST or GMT, you can still display IST when displaying this with PHP.

<?php
$timezone = new DateTimeZone("Asia/Kolkata" );
$date = new DateTime();
$date->setTimezone($timezone );
echo  $date->format( 'H:i:s A  /  D, M jS, Y' );
?>

Here is a list of supported timezones in PHP for your reference.
