Rate Limits & Latency

To keep our servers running reliably for all our users, there are following rate limits in the free account:

  1. 1. Per Minute 20 Request &
  2. 2. Per Day 1000 Request
More details about rate limits

We strive for a Latency of less than 300ms (Miliseconds). This is possible because we use very fast No SQL Database to serve all the requests. If the data is stale, we will get the details from GSP & GST Portal. In that case, if GSP or GST portal response times are high, the Latency can in the range of 5 to 6 seconds. In a rare scenario where GSP or the GST portal takes more then 7 seconds to respond, we serve the stale data from database.
