Solution 1

Find a service which provides this information (if you want the latest information you might have to pay, there is usually free service available for slightly delayed data), and then write against its API. That will probably contain a service method to get the data for a particular symbol.

You can either use a web service and poll, or find a data provider which will allow you to subscribe to updates and push the updates to you through TCP.

If you have a 'client' then presumably you are some sort of consultant and therefore should be capable of analysing the available options and selecting one that best fulfils the client's need. I don't know anything about Indian market data providers and that's something that hopefully you can find.

Ideal solution: Find a service that gives u the possibility of subscribing to change in rates and push them to you.

Quick solution(Dirty too): Perhaps you must already be watching the rates on some website. You must also be relying n this website for rates. so the easiest way to still keep using the same website from a win-form. have web-browser in a win-form and tune to auto refresh the page after a fixed interval, say 5 minutes. tweak this browser to show you partial pages if you want smaller UI.

If you do this, you should check that the terms of use of the website permit automated scraping, or you might find yourself blocked from using it (though the chances of them noticing a minute-level scraper is pretty low).

If you have a question of your own then use the Ask a Question link. Not many people will see your question as you have posted it as a solution to an old question. This can also lead to downvotes, which in turn can lead to your account being disabled. Either way ... use the "Ask a question" link to get an answer - or use Solution 1 or Solution 2
