There is not much activity on the forums these days. May be everyone is really busy like I have been over the past few weeks (causing me to delay this release which i promised to do on 31 Jan). Anyway, i hope this new release spices things up a bit.

Getbhavcopy version 2.0.7 released

Posted on December 4, 2009 at 10:49 PM Comments comments (54)

Over the past three days Getbhavcopy users have not been able to download NSE Equity EOD data because NSE changed the way it provides the csv file. The CSV is no longer provided as clear text but is provided in a zip file. Hence Getbhavcopy was getting 404 error when it tried to download the CSV file for the past three days.


This zip logic has been incorporated in Getbhavcopy version 2.0.7 and data download should be fine now.


Moreover some users reported t...

Getbhavcopy version 2.0.5 released

Posted on August 8, 2009 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (13)

This one is a quick fix to let Getbhavcopy users know that there was an error downloading NSE indices data.


As we have seen recently, NSE Indices data does not get downloaded and Getbhavcopy does not report any error. Since the issue is at NSE end (i.e. no indices data generated) Getbhavcopy cannot do much as the data is not availabe for it to download, but it should atleast notify the users that there was an issue.


Now with this version in case Getbhavcop...

A new version of Getbhavcopy has been released to fix the following issues:


  • Till version 2.0.3 Getbhavcopy used to send a post to NSE to generate the CSV file for the index and then downloaded that csv file with index data. Recently I was noticing a lot of 404 Not Found errors being returned from NSE server randomly while downloading the NSE Indices data file.

Getbhavcopy version 1.4.1 will be discontinued

Posted on January 4, 2009 at 3:22 AM Comments comments (2)

On the request of few users I had re-enabled Getbhavcopy version 1.4.1. This was to give some users time to upgrade to version 2.0 and to download the latest version of .NET.


I will discontinue this version on 15-Feb-2009, so you will not be able to download data with it after that.


Users using this version are requested to upgrade to Getbhavcopy ver 2.0.1 by that time.
