Incorrect rate limit mentioned in docs?

I was testing whether the rate limit mentioned in the docs is correct or not.
I wrote a very small script:

This gives a final output as: Completed requests: 30

According to the docs that “31” should have been around 100. I have made sure that I used a freshly created access_token.

Please correct me if I am wrong in my understanding or my script.


[EDIT] updated docs mention 500 requests in 5 mins

@tanmaydatta we are checking this.

@tanmaydatta, you can use this link to find exact rate limits for each url:
The rate limit for the url you have used is 30. 500 requests in 5 min is IP based limit.
