In this article we will see how we can get the book closure start date of given company using nsetools. Nsetools is a library for collecting real time data from National Stock Exchange of India. A stock quote is the price of a stock as quoted on an exchange. A basic quote for a specific stock provides information, such as its bid and ask price, last traded price, and volume traded. Book closure is a time period during which a company will not handle adjustments to the shareholder register or requests to transfer shares. Companies will often use the book closure date to identify the cut-off date for determining which investors on record will receive a dividend payment for that period.
Steps to get the Stock Quote
1. Import the Nse from nsetools
2. Create a Nse object
3. From the Nse object get the stock quote with the help of get_quote method with the NSE Stock code of the company
4. Get the book closure start date from the quote with the help of ‘bcStartDate’ key
5. Print the book closure start value
Below is the implementation
Book closure Start date : 10-JUL-20
Book closure Start date : 19-JUN-18
