Question on Expiry Dates

Kite shows me option expiry as 30th April for NIFTY APR 8500 Put, however when I check the info it says NIFTY20APR8500PE. Which one is correct and how can I validate the expiry date of the option before buying? For most options on Kite I see end of the month as expiry for respective month option.


Another example Nifty MAR 9700 PE

Kite says 26th Mar as expiry but then within positions tab if I click on Info it says NIFTY20MAR9700PE. Why 20MAR?Sav3

@siva Please can you clarify. Sorry if this is a stupid question, searched other similar questions here as well but couldn’t find an answer.

monthly expiry is shown on the month and not on the date ,

Sorry does that mean the part under info that shows NIFTY20MAR9700PE, Mar is the month expiry? What does 20 stand for?

Also on same screenshot which you posted there is expiry date, you can check it there also.

That’s what I was confused about. Which one to consider as expiry. Got it resolved now, thank you for your response.
