Please let us know what version of Ubuntu you are running.

You might want to sync to ntp servers.

When you right click & adjust date and time:

Configuration: Keep syncronized with internet servers
Time Servers: Select Servers (click)

The time servers list will come up, select an appropriate server for
your region. I highly recommend using the pool servers:

>From your IP, you appear to be in New Delhi, so you'd use an
server from your region:

The server for India is: You can try that one, however:
There are not enough servers in this zone, so we recommend you use the
Asia zone (


So, back to the time server interface; you'd enter and check these
servers by clicking the "Add" button:
then "Add"
then "Add"

Make sure that you check the servers you've just added. Uncheck any
default server that may have been previously checked.

Note: in order for this to work you'll need an "always on" connection
(cable, dsl etc).
