The Best Answer is


java.util.Calendar.getInstance() represents the current time using the current locale and timezone.

You could also choose to import and use Joda-Time or one of the forks for Android.

Try this :

 val sdf = SimpleDateFormat("dd/M/yyyy hh:mm:ss")
 val currentDate = sdf.format(Date())
 System.out.println(" C DATE is  "+currentDate)
