    There is no KiteConnect API to check quantity freeze.

    You can check quantity freeze calculation here:

    Or,place a test order with very big quantity and check the exception message .

    Srijan, Zerodha already has this "exact" quantity freeze data for each and every contract out there (not just NIFTY/BANKNIFTY, but individual stock fut/opt contracts as well), and we see them in the form of a "nudge" in the Kite web platform.

    Hence it would be good you would provide this data (which nudge pulls) as an API (freeze_quantity_basket_order to be exact) in the upcoming updates of kiteconnect.

    KiteConnect is just a way to connect to the Kite platform,as the name tells.

    In Kite also,you get a exception message only when you place an order. There is no separate Nudge section.

    This can only be available as a separate KiteConnect API when this feature is launched on Kite.

    So, please write your suggestion to support .

    For now,you have to place a test order and read the exception message.
