NIFI ExecuteSQL AVRO logical type converts all dates to UTC


While querying postgres database using ExecuteSQL Processor 1.16.1 converts the date into UTC format. However my target system requirement is to store data in local timezone. This happens only if you set the AVRO logical data type to True. If Avro logical types set to false then it returns the localtime. I have few 100 date fields and i cannot convert each of these from the source. How do i force the ExecuteSQL with AVRO type set to return the date as-is from the source. 


When Avro Type set to false : "install_date" : "2018-07-20 13:31:25.733"

When Avro Type set to true:  "install_date" : "2018-07-20T05:31:25.733Z",

I had a look into it but that's not the right solution to my opinion. ExecuteSQL just converts every date into UTC, lets say if the dates are already in UTC then it once again converts to UTC which is not right.
