Hi Friends,

I am using Odoo9. I need to display particular date time field's value as '2015-10-25 09:00:00', in databse it is stored as '2015-10-25 09:00:00',

while it is displayed in front end(odoo form level) as '2015-10-25 14:30:00'. Is anyone have idea on how to display same as database date time as UTC (If i have change UTC timezone as system it is working fine, I dont want to follow this idea) .Thanks in advance.

Did you try to change tz in the context?

the time showed in the front end is total of  , (backend time + gmt)

in your question the backend time is 9:00 and front end time is 14:30

and your gmt is 5:30 so if you want to show the exact time as the backend you have to subtract the gmt from front end

Cant use timedelta for timezone issue.
