Code:
TZ=EST date +%z
From the date man page:
Code:
TZ     Specifies the timezone, unless overridden by command line parameters.
       If neither  is  specified,  the setting from /etc/localtime is used.

But when I entered the command

TZ=IST date +%z

Then I got +0000 instead of +530

Thanks,
Nagendra.

IST is not a valid timezone. Check under /usr/share/zoneinfo for available timezone names. Sometimes you have to specify the long name of a timezone. For example if IST equals Europe/Dublin:
Code:
$ TZ=Europe/Dublin date +%z
