Hi again,

I was following the instruction available in
to download data from Internet contained in a zip file from the
address :


However when I tried to follow the instruction I am facing below error :

> temp <- tempfile()
> download.file("https://npscra.nsdl.co.in/download.php?path=download/&filename=NAV_File_23122016.zip",temp)
Error in download.file("https://npscra.nsdl.co.in/download.php?path=download/&filename=NAV_File_23122016.zip",
  unsupported URL scheme

Can someone here please tell me what went wrong in above?

Highly appreciate your feedback.

Thanks for your time.
