Tick data time

What time zone is tick data streamed via websockets. Exchange time(IST) or local time where the script runs? Is it advised to convert streamed time to UTC and use for further calculations?

    The exchange sends these values in Unix timestamp. We convert it to milliseconds and to a Date object.
    Ideally, it should be converted to IST if you are out of India. If not, then default system time zone is considered which will be IST.
