Login to the host node via ssh.

Stop the VM(container) on which you want to set time.

Quote
# vzctl stop 151

Set the container to have capability to change the time zone.

Quote
# vzctl set 151 --capability sys_time:on --save

Start the VM and login to it.

Quote
# vzctl start 151
# vzctl enter 151

Set/Change your local timezone with below commands.

Quote
# mv /etc/localtime /etc/localtime.old
# ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Calcutta /etc/localtime


Set the date and time.
