Getbhavcopy: Free NSE and BSE data downloader

Getbhavcopy version 2.1.4a released

Posted on November 19, 2012 at 1:25 AM

This new version fixes the following issues

  1. BSE Indices data download issue that started when BSE updated it's website some time ago.
  2. NSE Indices data download issue that started recently because NSE changed its historical indices page

Apologies for not meeting my original commitment of releasing 2.1.4a during Diwali. i tried to resolve the issue with F&O data, but i kept running into issues and the effort involved seemed considerable. Hence decided to drop that feature for now and release the BSE Indices fix only.


While testing realized NSE had broken the Indices data download too, which was fixed promptly.


My server is up for renewal in Jan 2013 so any contribution towards the same will be appreciated.


In the end, I wish the Getbhavcopy community a Happy Diwali and a prosperous New Year !!


UPDATE 1 (19 Nov 2012) :- Please note that I have updated the .net framework requirement from 3.5 to 4.0, so if you are experiencing any issue with Getbhavcopy, it is advisable to first ensure that you have installed .net 4.0 runtime from http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=17718



UPDATE 2 (19 Nov 2012):- Some people are reporting that the 2.1.4a version of Getbhavcopy is a virus. I am not sure why some antivirus programs are reporting so. I did a test myself using AVG and Malwarebytes installed on my machine and they did not report anything. So as to be fully sure I did a online scan and the results are at https://www.virustotal.com/file/091a8da633c991d437ef293589b857f3d011a642822aea69c160d8040735d93f/analysis/1353309980/ for all of you to see it.


I do see that some antivirus programs are detecting something, but many of the reputed ones like kaspersky, mcafee, norton, trendmicro are not detecting anything.


Please note that I do take such things seriously as Getbhavcopy is a brand in itself, but I am optimistic that this can be treated as a false alarm.


In the end I will leave it up to your discreetion if you want to use Getbhavcopy or not due to this, as in this cyberworld no one can be 100% sure (not even I), so if there is something untoward to happen out of this, I would not be held responsible.


UPDATE 3 (20 Nov 2012) - Many people are reporting an issue in version 2.1.4a, whereby Getbhavcopy gets stuck in case one tries to download data for a day when markets were closed, hence no data would exist on the server. To experience this scenario try downloading data for 14th November as it was a holiday. You will see log similar to the one below

Message ********* Starting Getbhavcopy *********

Message ********* Downloading Data for 14-11-2012 *********

Message Downloading NSE Equity Bhavcopy

Error Error downloading NSE Equity Bhavcopy file

Error The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

Message Downloading index data for NSENIFTY


UPDATE 4 (20 Nov 2012) - Many users are also reporting that 2.1.4a does not work on Windows 7. I tested it out and there is no such issue. I confirm Getbhavcopy works without issues on Windows 7. I suggest all users should update to the .net framework 4.0 as mentioned above.

My Trend Micro software says the download from 4shared is a malicious software. It does not allow to open it.

Do exactly as i say:

1) Press ctrl+A and click on Filter.
2) On series, uncheck EQ and press OK.
3) Select rest of the data and delet it.
4) Click on series again and click on EQ. Now there is only Equity data of stock.
5) Copy Date field and replace it with Series field.
6) Get your data in this order, Symbol, Date, Open, High, Low, Close, Traded Quantity, Date(again) .....delete rest of the data.
7) Change date format to yyyymmdd and save and exit.
8) Open again, and delete last colum of date...now the order will be.....Symbol, Date, Open, High, Low, Close, Traded Quantity.
9) Save and exit.
10) Now go to control panel of your PC, and click on folder option.
11) Uncheck on hide known file format, and exit.
12) Change extention of CSV file format to txt.
13) Remate txt file to same as other bhavcopy file downloaded and just change the date.
14) Now manually add Nifty Index data, such as Symbol, open, high, low etc...same as above.
Save the file and exit.
15) You got all the data you need for charting
