How to set time zone in code igniter?

I working on a php project using codeigniter. Please advise me what is the global way to set time zone for php and mysql . In which file i can set this. I want to set it without php.ini and htaccess file.

currently i am using this before every entry -:

$time = Date('Y-m-d h:i:s');

Placing this date_default_timezone_set('Asia/Kolkata'); on config.php above base url also works

PHP List of Supported Time Zones


defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');


| Base Site URL
| URL to your CodeIgniter root. Typically this will be your base URL,
| WITH a trailing slash:
| If this is not set then CodeIgniter will try guess the protocol, domain
| and path to your installation. However, you should always configure this
| explicitly and never rely on auto-guessing, especially in production
| environments.
$config['base_url'] = '';

// Codeigniter 3 Do not leave base url blank

$config['base_url'] = 'http://localhost/project/';
