The value '27/06/2014' is not valid for Date in MVC 4

Once I was getting this an model generated error message while choosing date in this format 27/06/2014 (any date more then 12/mm/yy).

Error Message is: The value '27/06/2014' is not valid for Date in MVC 4

Previously my Model and View was like this:

View Code Portion:

<div class="editor-field">
            @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.DateOfBirth, new { style = "width:310px;height:25px" })
            @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.DateOfBirth)

Model Code Portion:

[Required(ErrorMessage = "Date of birth field is required")]
        [DisplayName("Date of Birth:")]
 public System.DateTime? DateOfBirth { get; set; }

Note: Here even if I had DataType portion commented for DateOfBirth  model, I was getting error message. As it was not coming from model actually it was coming from controller end.

Solution For This:

In Web Config add this:

    <globalization culture="en-US" />

In Global.asax.cs add this:

 protected void Application_BeginRequest()
            CultureInfo info = new CultureInfo(System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.ToString());
            info.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "dd.MM.yyyy";
            System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = info;
