Timestamp in MCX

I understand that the timestamp field in the tick data being received over web sockets is the time when the tick was generated by the exchange.

For MCX instruments, I am observing the timestamp to be some other timezone. e.g at 1:05 PM IST, the timestamp being reported is 7:05 PM.

Can you pls elaborate what timezone MCX exchange instrument's timestamp would come in as.

    I am also facing the same issue.
    Only the timestamp field is shifted by 5 hours 30 minutes. Last trade price and historical data are showing the time as per our timezone.

    use timedelta to solve the problem..

    We know how to solve the problem. Question is not that. Question is why the time should be like this.

    I guess the time zones are not correctly implemented on their servers. If you see India is +5:30 from time zone and that is the reason time is having that much different. I guess someone has to raise this concern with MCX or zerodha and they should be able to correct this issue.

    Facing the same issue.

    This issue wasn't there until a couple of weeks ago. Zerodha seems to be missing a QA team. Lots of bugs pass through with newer builds.

    hi, am facing the same issue
    my server time is '7/20/2018 2:51:07 AM' but not the IST and what timestamp am getting in response from the ticker is "7/21/2018 3:51:07 AM" which is not even possible, please suggest what to do?
    As am not being able to convert the timestamp because if I try to then ticker gets stopped automatically.
