I am using MVC5 wrappers for DateTIme in Kendo  Grid (ASP NET MVC wrappers)
My application works correctly when test it locally for date time, however when I deploy it on Azure website then issues starts. Timezone gets added to the datetime picker at time of display. I would like to keep it as UTC and not finding any proper solution.

I looked at following links but found none for MVC wrappers. I did not get what exactly to be done.
http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/using-utc-time-on-both-client-and-server-sides
http://www.telerik.com/forums/timezone-issue
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18718996/format-datetime-in-kendo-ui-grid-using-asp-net-mvc-wrapper

So as a fallback approach, I just converted date time to string as mydate.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt");
However, I do not think this is right approach and feel there has to be better way rather than converting to string. Please let me know the correct solution and any sample code will help for using Datetime (Time is important for me) with Kendo Grid.

I could solve using js from one of the links. Its working properly for me.
However, I would like to know can it be done completely in c#?

Hello Shreesh,

This can hardly be done on the server-side, as the timezone offset is added on the client-side during the creation of the Date object. Additionally, the offset is different depending on the time-zone in which the client machine is, preventing you from properly calculating the dates on the server.
