I just saw my today's reputation points earning on english.stackexchange.com to be 10 and that too voted up 7 hours ago, though it's just 50 min. past mid-night (IST).

What time standard is followed by Stack Exchange?

It is UTC. You can see the current time Stack Exchange uses if hover your user name on the navigation bar on the top.
