Moreover, this function is defined under the time package. Here, you need to import the “time” package in order to use these functions.

// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Local() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Defining t parameter of Local method
    t := time.Date(2019, 2, 11, 10, 
              03, 00, 00, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling Local method
    local := t.Local()
  
    // Prints output
    fmt.Printf("%v\n", local)
}

// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Defining location using FixedZone method
    location := time.FixedZone("UTC-7", -6*56*34)
  
    // Defining t for calling Local method
    t := time.Date(2019, 2, 11, 10, 03, 00, 00, location)
  
    // Calling Local method
    local := t.Local()
  
    // Prints output
    fmt.Printf("%v\n", local)
}

Output:

2019-02-11 13:13:24 +0000 UTC

Here, FixedZone() method is used in order to define the location parameter of the Date() method so the time in output is returned according to that location.
