What is the different between the instrument token and exchange token for a stock?

What is the purpose of having both for a given stock?

    Hi @ayush,

    Exchange token is assigned by exchanges. Across segments, multiple instruments may have same exchange tokens. Whereas instrument token is assigned by Zerodha. And it will be unique across the exchanges and segments. When you are using Kite Connect API make sure you use instrument token.
