The date.getUTCDate() method is used to fetch the date of a month according to universal time from a given Date object.

Syntax:

DateObj.getUTCDate();

Parameter: This method does not accept any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch the date of the month according to universal time.

Return Values: It returns the date of the month for the given date object according to universal time. The date of the month is an integer value ranging from 1 to 31.



More codes for the above method are as follows:

Program 1: The date of the month should lie in between 1 to 31 because none of the months have a date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because the date for the month does not exist.

   var B = dateobj.getUTCDate();
  
   // Printing date of the month.
   document.write(B);
