I have just installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 replacing Windows 8.1. But the system time +5:30 ahead of actual time. I am from India and the UTC offset is +5:30. By running hwclock i found that my system interprets the hardware clock as UTC, while it actually is the local time. I tried to edit the /etc/default/rcS file (as per Hardware clock is using UTC time). But rcS file doesn't contain the UTC entry. The file contents are shown below. What can be done?
Result of hwclock --debug:
hwclock from util-linux 2.27.1 Using the /dev interface to the clock. Last drift adjustment done at 1474290330 seconds after 1969 Last calibration done at 1474290330 seconds after 1969 Hardware clock is on local time Assuming hardware clock is kept in local time.
