     I am have been evaluating the Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC and I have noticed a date format issue with the Kendo UI Grid when it comes to UTC Format. I have not been able to resolve this so I am hoping someone here will have a solution to this problem.

    Basically I have a created date which is currently stored in the database in UTC Format and when I retrieve this date and bind it to the Kendo UI Grid, the format is coming as

    Tue Apr 21 2015 21:05:35 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)

     How can I display this date in the Eastern Daylight Time?

    "April 21, 2015 5:05:35 PM"

     Please let me know if more information is required.

    Hi Manjit,

    This happen because Date objects in JavaScript are always created with a local timezone offset. Please refer to the following example, which illustrates how to tackle the problem:
