How to convert UTC time into local time in CRM 2011

Sometimes, we need to Convert UTC time into local time for various reasons. If you are in that condition, here is the some lines of code for you to do it.

private static string RetrieveLocalTimeFromUTCTime(DateTime utcTime, string crmUri)
ClientCredentials credentials = new ClientCredentials();
credentials.Windows.ClientCredential = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;
Uri organizationUri = new Uri(crmUri);

using (OrganizationServiceProxy serviceProxy = new OrganizationServiceProxy(organizationUri, null, credentials, null))
IOrganizationService _serviceProxy = (IOrganizationService)serviceProxy;

var _timeZoneCode = _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(
new QueryExpression(“usersettings”)
ColumnSet = new ColumnSet(“timezonecode”),
Criteria = new FilterExpression
Conditions =
new ConditionExpression(“systemuserid”, ConditionOperator.EqualUserId)

var request = new LocalTimeFromUtcTimeRequest();
request.TimeZoneCode = (int)_timeZoneCode;
request.UtcTime = utcTime.ToUniversalTime();

var response = (LocalTimeFromUtcTimeResponse)_serviceProxy.Execute(request);

return response.LocalTime.ToString();
