        // Creating a TimeZone
        TimeZone offtime_zone
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone(
                "Pacific/Pago_Pago");
  
        // set time zone ID
        offtime_zone.setID("GMT+05:00");
  
        // Knowing the DST
        System.out.println("The ID is: "
                           + offtime_zone.getID());
