Unable to set the correct time in Ubuntu Gnome

Recently ran in to a problem using Ubuntu Gnome where the time kept going back -5 hours of GMT.

Even after setting the time through the control panel and rebooting the system, it was still showing the wrong time.

To remedy this I installed the tzdata package by entering the following command in terminal

sudo apt-get install tzdata

After the package installed, I then ran the following command and was able to set the correct time via the terminal
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
