Current UTC Time is:
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the standard time zone of the world. UTC is almost the same than the previous standard, the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
The same time can hence be used by people all over the world and time zones are named by how many hours they are different from UTC time. For example, UTC -5 (United States east coast) is 5 hours behind UTC. If the time is 09:00 UTC, the local time is 04:00 in New York (UTC -5). UTC uses the 24-hour clock and there is no 'AM' or 'PM'.
The abbreviation UTC for Coordinated Universal Time is a compromise between the English "CUT" ("coordinated universal time") and the French "TUC" ("temps universel coordonné").
Time zones are regions on Earth that have a uniform standard time .
There are 39 time zones dividing the Earth into different times, each with its own name, like the North American Eastern Time Zone.
Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by a whole number of hours, but a few are offset by 30 or 45 minutes.
