    They are both incorrect. As you have already been told, "The date hasn't been fixed yet" and "The date isn't fixed yet" are correct.

    The date hasn't been fixed yet
    The date isn't fixed yet

    Thank you.

    but above mentioned both lines are in present tense?

    how can i write past tense? ( The date didnt fixed at that time- is this right?)

    "The date hadn't been fixed at that time" or "The date wasn't fixed at that time".

    The date won't be fixed at that time. -- They won't make the decision then.
    The date won't have been fixed at that time. -- The decision won't have been made by then.


    Example: The committee is meeting on May 2. There is an event coming up. They will NOT decide the date of the event at their May 2 meeting: The date won't be fixed at that time.

    Example: A committee is meeting on May 2. There is an event coming up. Another organization sets the date for the event. The committee can't make many plans at their May 2 meeting because The date will not have been fixed [by that other organization] at that time.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
