    can you please confirm me the output is set right?

    Local time: Sat 2019-10-19 16:15:10 IST
    Universal time: Sat 2019-10-19 10:45:10 UTC
    RTC time: Sat 2019-10-19 10:45:10
    Time zone: Asia/Kolkata (IST, +0530)
    System clock synchronized: yes
    systemd-timesyncd.service active: yes
    RTC in local TZ: no

    WordPress Timezone: Universal time (UTC) is 2019-10-19 16:15:10. Local time is 2019-10-19 21:45:10.

    I am asking this because a plugin developer is denying support by saying . my LOCAL TIME AND UNIVERSAL TIME is not correct

    Minutes must be the same in both realtime and universal time.

    Is he right?

      I don’t know if the developer is correct or wrong. I am not a developer. The local and UTC will not exactly be same. When I typing this comment, the local time in India (ITC) is 4.30 pm and the UTC is 11.30 am.

      If you want same time in LOCAL TIME and UTC, just switch back to UTC time by running the following command:

      sudo timedatectl set-timezone UTC

      Now you will see same time (hours, minutes, seconds etc) in local time and UTC.
