I am using Startdatetime_c custom field as a Date/Time data type, when am inserting a record in salesforce as Startdatetime_c = 26/03/2014 10:00.This record is inserting as per my request, but when am retrieving the particular record using SOQL query in developer console the Startdatetime__c field shown as 26/03/2014 09:00 1 hour delay...why it happens? Is there any ways to solve this?

Thanks VenaktsForce

what is your organization timezone? – highfive Mar 26 '14 at 13:40
@highfive This is my Organization Timezone (GMT+00:00) Greenwich Mean Time (Europe/London) – Venkatsforce Mar 26 '14 at 14:03
Doh! in that case my answer may not help you. But can't think of any other possibilities. Is this happen for all the records? What about other datetime fields if any? – highfive Mar 26 '14 at 16:36

DateTime field values are stored as Coordinate Universal Time(UTC) in salesforce. When displaying them in a client application, they will be converted to the relevant organization time zone. So in the developer console you will see the values in UTC and if you bind them into a VF page, you can see the converted value.
