    Thanks Sujith.
    I would like to know is instrument_token always unique everyday?
  • sujith
    It will be unique for the day in the instruments dump file.
  • Rupali
    @sujith why am receiving all values as zero.
    Posting source as well:

    instrument_dump = kite.instruments("NSE")
    instrument_df = pd.DataFrame(instrument_dump)

    Attached SS of the CVS file. Please help.

    INDICES can't be traded, so all those irreverent fields are null.

    @rakeshr ,

    Even for EQ, its showing Zero. Attaching snapshot.

    Here is snippet of code.

    instrument_dump = kite.instruments(exchange = "NSE")
    instrument_df = pd.DataFrame(instrument_dump)
    instrument_df.to_csv("NSE_Instruments_01_09_2021.csv", index=False)

    Attaching SS of PDB.

    The full Instrument list is used for instrument info like instrument_token, trading symbol, etc but not for live market data, so market data like last price, won't be able on full instrument list.
    For all live market data, you will have to use Quote or Websocket streaming.
