Change the last line in your script to,
Code:
perl -e ' use POSIX qw(strftime); print strftime "%e/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S", localtime('$RESULT');';

Like thegeek said, you can use relative dates with e.g. GNU date. For example:
Code:
$> date -d "$(echo "21/10/2009 23:00:00"|awk -F/ '{OFS="/";print $2,$1,$3}') 3 hours" +'%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S' 
22/10/2009 02:00:00
