  • The date.getUTCFullYear() method is used to fetch the year according to universal time from a given Date object.

    Syntax:

    DateObj.getUTCFullYear();

    Parameter: This method does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch year according to universal time.

    Return Values: It returns the year for the given date object DateObj according to universal time.



    Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor from which we want to fetch year according to universal time.

    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. If the date for the month does not exist, the year will also not be existed.
