When used for time zone that varies by the half hour rather than the standard one hour from GMT (or 45 min - Nepal) will output combination of hours and second as difference to Greenwich:

date("O");   will generate (date("r")) :

+052700 Nepal Standard Time(GMT+05:45)
-031800 Newfoundland Standard Time (GMT-03:30), etc.

PHP documentation:
O - Difference to Greenwich Time in hours; e.g. "+0200" 

NOT in hours AND"Z") works fine.
