Using which api can I get the latest price of NIFTY 50 and NIFTYBANK?

I want to get the latest underlying value of NIFTY 50 and NIFTYBANK. I tried to use live date api but it did not work. This is the URL I call :


But I get 400 error. Please let me know the correct api to call. also let me know if I want to fetch the latest LTP using Web socket for nifty and nifybank , then how can I do it ?

Please give me an example

thank you .

Hi @spratap124
You are calling the correct API for fetching the latest price but the query parameters you are passing are wrong which is why you are getting a 400 Bad Request error as a response. Please find the cURL for the live Market Data API below

curl --location --request GET '{MODE_TYPE}&pref={PREFERENCES}' \
--header 'x-jwt-token: {YOUR_JWT_TOKEN}'

You need to pass two query params:

  1. mode: we currently support three modes- LTP, QUOTE, FULL
  2. pref: list of scrips for which you want to fetch the live price
    • Structure of Pref: {Exchange}:{ScripId}:{ScripType}
      • Exchange: NSE or BSE
      • ScripId: Security id (use security master API to fetch latest scrip ids)
      • ScripType: INDEX, EQUITY, ETF, FUTURE, or OPTION

You also need to pass your jwt in the headers. Live Market Data API can be accessed using {access_token} or {read_access_token}. Use Generate Acess Token API for generating the jw token.

Sample cURL for fetching the Latest Price for Nifty 50 and nifty bank:

curl --location --request GET ',NSE:25:INDEX' \
--header 'x-jwt-token: {access_token}'

Thanks @AbhishekMehta Live api now working , but websocket is still returning {} only

Hi @spratap124

Can you share your implementation?

Or also you can try the Sample Client-Side Implementation from the API docs Live Market data WebSocket Streaming.

Just add/change the following things :

  1. const WebSocket = require('ws').WebSocket; add this at the top of the code to import WebSocket.
  2. Change data = message.datadata =; in the code.
  3. Run npm install ws in terminal to install ws library.
  4. Then run the js file.

@AbhishekMehta May I know from where can i get pml id? I don’t see the same in security master list.
