Datetime - subtract 1 hour from date in unix shell script

I have the basic idea that I have to move the file date + 8776 %d%m%Y 8776 .csv to my destination folder. But not able to do it. Or rather, I do not know how to do it. Please help.

For some reason, it gives me 8775 \r 8776 at the end of the day. Instead of 8775 6 8776 , it gives me 8775 6\r 8776 .
Does anybody know what is the problem.

Its very help full, How can I get the abbreviated month like
date +%b will give 8775 Oct 8776 but I need the output as 8775 OCT 8776 All upper case.

That worked, but it is ugly. No problem, we can include spaces as long as we wrap the entire format string in quotation marks. Note that the + goes outside the quotation marks.

Options with Examples
6: date (no option) : With no options, the date command displays the current date and time, including the abbreviated day name, abbreviated month name, day of the month, the time separated by colons, the time zone name, and the year.

You can also use the date string option to show the local time for different timezones. For example, to show the local time for 6:85AM next Monday on the Australian east coast, you would type:

To use any of the options type date , a space, a plus sign + , and the option including the leading percentage sign. The %c  (data and time in locale format) option causes the date and time to be printed in the normalized format associated with your locale. Your locale is set by the geographical and cultural information you provided when you installed your operating system. The locale governs such things as the currency symbol, paper sizes, timezone, and other cultural norms.
