I am using Asia/Calcutta timezone. Though its been quite sometime when it was renamed to Asia/Kolkata . And it seems django doesn't know about Asia/Kolkata. Please support the new name. Thank you.

This actually isn't anything to do with Django itself. Django doesn't include a list of timezone names or process the naming of timezones - it only uses the TIME_ZONE setting to force the system environment to a particular time zone. The support for Asia/Kolkata (or any other timezone) is entirely dependent upon the support provided by your operating system. OS/X, for example, supports Asia/Kolkata. Other operating systems (or operating systems that haven't been updated since Calcutta changed it's name) may not support the new name.
