but I need the date format like
and I fail every time. Can anyone tell me how can I resolve it?


I don't think that the other posted answers are quite right, you have already accepted one as working for you so I won't edit it.

Here is an updated version of your accepted answer.

var dateString = "\/Date(1334514600000)\/".substr(6);
var currentTime = new Date(parseInt(dateString ));
var month = currentTime.getMonth() + 1;
var day = currentTime.getDate();
var year = currentTime.getFullYear();
var date = day + "/" + month + "/" + year;

It uses a technique from this answer to extract the epoch from the JSON date.
