Instrument Tokens for the options and Futures


I downloaded the instruments dump from the kiteconnect python client using the following:

instrument_dump = kite.instruments(exchange='NFO')

I am not getting any error. The instrument dump gets downloaded.

The issue beiing inside the dump I am not able ro find the following option:

BANKNIFTY 26-Aug-2021 Put 35,000.00

I understand that the BANNIFTY Options are denoted as following BANKNIFT YY M DD StrikePrice Put/Call Option

Hence by this format I tried to search for BANKNIFTY2182635000PE But I am Unable to find the instrument token in the dump.

    Please Also Note that By using the format as described above I am able to find all the other options chain

    For eg: BANKNIFTY2190235000PE (Sept 2nd Put Option 35000 Strike Price) Gives me instruument token of 10119938

    I have also tried to redownload the dump once again today but the instrument is not found

    For last thursday of the month, there is no weekly options instrument. There is only a monthly expiry instrument.
  • Hsadikot

    Then ON NSE Website why it is denoted as 26-Aug-2021 and not as Monthly expiry.

    Like BANKNIFTY AUG 35000 CE/PE ?

    BANKNIFTY monthly instruments expire on last Thursday of the month.
