    Hi @Maede
    You can set timezone manually by storing specific timezone value to the variable and then add that variable to the date-picker plugin.
    Consider below code:
    Select Date: <input type="text" id="myDate" /> <br />
    Here i set id to the input text.
    Now we need to write jquery code like below:
    $(document).ready(function () {
    var a = new Date();
    var timeZoneOffset = +5*60 //Set specific timezone according to our need. i.e. GMT+5
    a.setMinutes(d.getMinutes() + a.getTimezoneOffset() + timeZoneOffset );
    $("#myDate").datepicker("option","maxDate", a );
    Let me explain you above code.
    Here i used Jquery Datepicker UI plugin and added this to the input field which id has #myDate.
    Note: you need to add Jquery CDN to your html page's head section to use datepicker UI plugin.
    You can get CDN from here:

    Now further to the code, i have stored GMT + 5 timezone to the variable manually then set that variable to the date picker. maxDate option allows defining maximum possible date selection after that dates are not selectable in the datepicker.

    Try above code by adding to your code. and let me know if you have any query.
    Hope This will help you.
    Thank you.

    Hi Harsh
    It works fine.
    Also I find following code :

    d = new Date(new Date().toLocaleString("en-UK",{timeZone:'Europe/London'}));

    I added it to "jquery.datetimepicker.js" and it works correctly too.

    Thanks a lot. :)
