Time Zone Issues on Windows

I'm experiencing timezone problems with Java 1.6 on Windows.

Instead of using the Asia/Calcutta time zone which Windows is using, it is using the America/Caracas time zone.

I checked the Windows time through the system clock firstly, then checked

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/control/TimeZoneInformation are set as Eastern Standard Time.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet002/control/TimeZoneInformation are set as Eastern Standard Time.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet003/control/TimeZoneInformation are set as Indian Standard Time.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/control/TimeZoneInformation are set as Indian Standard Time.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/Select ---- Current and Default value are 3.

Java version is 1.6

if it is referring to a time set elsewhere?

Please help me to fix this issue.

This might be a bug in the JVM. You can specify the timezone on the java command line: -Duser.timezone="Asia/Calcutta"
