kiteconnect.exceptions.TokenException: Token is invalid or has expired

Hi , I have created latest request token and try create Kiteconnect session using correct API_KEY.
Access token and Secret key even though getting error like kiteconnect.exceptions.TokenException: Token is invalid or has expired.
FYI.., I am using ubuntu 21.10 and python 3.9.

kite = KiteConnect(api_key=Jfile['Api_Key'])
#data = kite.generate_session(req_tocken, api_secret=Jfile['Api_Secret'])
gen_ss = kite.generate_session(request_token=req_tocken,api_secret=Jfile['Api_Secret'])

DEBUG:urllib3.connectionpool:Starting new HTTPS connection (1):

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/home/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/kiteconnect/", line 913, in _request
raise exp(data["message"], code=r.status_code)
kiteconnect.exceptions.TokenException: Token is invalid or has expired.

Please fix this issue.

    A request token is valid only for a few minutes and can be used only once. Try generating a new request token.

    I have generated five times and tested its not working.

    This shouldn't happen. Well,can you confirm that the line above the gen_ss ,where you declared 'data' variable is still a comment?? I can see a #. I mean you are not calling generate session twice,once when declaring 'data' and then 'gen_ss',right?? If you are not calling generate session twice,then only Sujith Sir,Rakesh Sir can help you.

    gen_ss and data both are same . I have commented data variable. please have look.

    You need to re-check if you are fetching the correct value from Jfile['Api_Secret'], it should be passed as string.
    You need to manually cross-verify data type(to be a string) and all values to be correctly passed for Jfile['Api_Key'], Jfile['Api_Secret'], and req_tocken.
