Getbhavcopy: Free NSE and BSE data downloader


Getbhavcopy version 2.1.3a released

Posted on January 6, 2012 at 4:10 AM

This new version fixes the following issues

  1. Startup issues that were happening since past few days
  2. 501 not implemented error for VIX data download
  3. 501 not implemented error for Open Interest data downloadfor NSE Equities.

Enjoy the new version! If you feel Getbhavcopy is worth it, please donate.

I Need your Help.

Do you

  1. Regularly use Getbhavcopy to download either NSE or BSE data and
  2. Use Metastock as your Technical analysis tool (i.e. import Getbhavcopy data to Metastock) and
  3. Keep your Metastock database up to date with Splits and Bonus declerations as well as company symbol/name changes (this is most important)

Only if you satisfy all three conditions, I need your help.

Can you zip your Metastock database directory (seperate zip files for NSE and BSE EOD data), and then upload to and share the link in the comments section of this post?

Your help will be much appreciated. My historical data is up to 2008 and since I am in USA for past few years and bit busy have not kept pace with updating my data.

Dear Hemen, Thanks for fixing and correcting the error.

Members, All we are frustrated from day 1 of 2012 because of not starting the GB . Every one must have tried to get daily data from alternative sources . Our Hemen is doing AND keeping GB updated for last few years . Now it is our duty to donate him and encourage him to continue and improve GB for MCX eod data.
Let us start donating and encourage him to start new project for the forum members.
