In this article, we will know the approaches to get the current time in Python. There are multiple ways to get it. The most preferably date-time module is used in Python to create the object containing date and time.
1: Current time of a timezone – Using pytZ module




from datetime import *
import pytz
  
  
tz_INDIA = pytz.timezone('Asia/Kolkata'
datetime_INDIA = datetime.now(tz_INDIA)
print("INDIA time:", datetime_INDIA.strftime("%H:%M:%S"))

Output:

INDIA time: 19:29:53

2 : Current time – Using date time object

Example 1:




from datetime import datetime
  
# now() method is used to
# get object containing 
# current date & time.
now_method = datetime.now()
  
# strftime() method used to
# create a string representing
# the current time.
currentTime = now_method.strftime("%H:%M:%S")
print("Current Time =", currentTime)

Output:

Current Time = 19:31:51

Example 2:




from datetime import datetime
  
# Time object containing 
# the current time.
time = datetime.now().time() 
  
print("Current Time =", time)

Output:

Current Time = 19:33:29.087840

3. Getting Time – using Time module.




import time
  
  
# localtime() method used to
# get the object containing
# the local time.
Time = time.localtime()
  
# strftime() method used to
# create a string representing
# the current time.
currentTime = time.strftime("%H:%M:%S", Time)
print(currentTime)

Output:

19:35:17
