Calculate 30/31 days from today date script

Hi Guys,
I was working some time ago n was in need to calculate date 30/31 days from today including Feb (Leap yr stuff). Today date is variable depending on day of execution of script. I tried searching but was not able to get exactly what I needed....So at that I time I implemented by my own which I have modified to generic so that it may helpful to you guys or somebody else like me in future...... Let me know if u find my problem with script

Code:
###############################################################################
# This Script add 30 days to current date and output next date including
# 28 or days days of February

# Author        Vaibhav Gautam
##############################################################################
#!/bin/ksh
#Start validation date is today date and validation end date is +30 days

lastday=$(cal `date '+%m'` `date '+%Y'` | grep . | fmt -1 | tail -1 )
currentdate=$(date '+%d')
currentmonth=$(date '+%m')
year=$(date '+%Y')

temp=$(($lastday - $currentdate ))

echo "Date Calculation Started"

#Next date after 30 days
#Change Value 31 for 30 days
expirydate=$((30 - $temp ))

if [ $expirydate -gt 0 ]
then
nextmonth=$(($currentmonth + 1 ))

        if [ $nextmonth -eq 2 ]
        then
                #If next month is feb then calculate last day of feb
                lastday_nextmnth=$(cal 2 `date '+%Y'` | grep . | fmt -1 | tail -1 )

                if [ $expirydate -gt $lastday_nextmnth ]
                then
                        carrydate=$(($expirydate - $lastday_nextmnth))
                        nextmonth=$(($nextmonth + 1))
                        echo "Current Date $currentdate/$currentmonth/$year\" Next Date \"$carrydate/$nextmonth/$year\""
                else
                        carrydate=$(($expirydate))
                        echo "Current Date $currentdate/$currentmonth/$year\" Next Date \"$carrydate/$currentmonth/$year\""
                fi
        else
        if [ $nextmonth -gt 12 ]
                then
                nextmonth=1
                nextyear=$(($year + 1 ))
                echo "Current Date $currentdate/$currentmonth/$year\" Next Date \"$expirydate/$nextmonth/$nextyear\""
                else
                echo "Current Date $currentdate/$currentmonth/$year\" Next Date \"$expirydate/$nextmonth/$year\""
                fi
        fi
else
expirydate=$lastday
echo "Current Date $currentdate/$currentmonth/$year\" Next Date \"$expirydate/$currentmonth/$year\""
fi

# 2  
Please post the script in CODE tags
# 3  
#!/bin/ksh
is useless unless it it the first line in a script. See: https://www.unix.com/tips-tutorials/3...r-bin-ksh.html
# 4  
If you are using ksh93, a much shorter solution is available using printf.
Code:
$ date
Thu Jul  9 09:48:10 EDT 2009
$ printf "%T\n" "now + 30 days"
Sat Aug  8 09:48:47 EDT 2009
$
