basket_order_margins giving error very frequently

pseudo edited July 2023 in Python client
My Code example for today:
order_param_basket = [{'exchange': 'NFO', 'tradingsymbol': 'BANKNIFTY2371344800CE', 'transaction_type': 'SELL', 'variety': 'regular', 'product': 'MIS', 'order_type': 'MARKET', 'quantity': 25}, {'exchange': 'NFO', 'tradingsymbol': 'BANKNIFTY2371344800PE', 'transaction_type': 'SELL', 'variety': 'regular', 'product': 'MIS', 'order_type': 'MARKET', 'quantity': 25}]
kite.basket_order_margins(order_param_basket, mode='compact')

Following is the error: "error computing charges: could not get instrument details : instrument not found: NSE:BANKNIFTY2371344800CE"

My algos are failing often due to these errors, I have also implemented retries after every 1 sec for 10 times, but not helping. Please help asap.

    As the error explains the instrument name can't be found in the NSE exchange, it should be NFO exchange.

    basket seems correct, looks like something is going wrong elsewhere in code. Thank you for your quick response.
