Hello prasharry2k5,

Could you please explain why you're trying to use the DATETIME type if you only want the date? The following piece of code will give you the current date in the format that you asked..
SELECT date_format(CurDate(), '%d/%m/%y')
Alternately, if you're trying to access a date from a table:
SELECT date_format(column, '%d/%m/%y') FROM table
Since you didn't really specify what you were trying to access / why, I'm afraid that's the best I can offer.
