Gnucash not able to retrieve India Mutual Fund NAVs due to change in amfiindia URL

GnuCash Finance Quotes module has not been able to retrieve mutual fund quotes from the http://amfiindia.com website since past 2 weeks. The reason is that they have changed the URL http://amfiindia.com to http://portal.amfiindia.com. Follow the instructions below to fix the issue with a simple change to the URL in IndiaMutual.pm file.

In a terminal window, type the following command to open IndiaMutual.pm file.
$ sudo gedit /usr/share/perl5/Finance/Quote/IndiaMutual.pm <enter>
Look for the following line in the file:
$AMFI_MAIN_URL = ("http://amfiindia.com/");

Replace it with:
$AMFI_MAIN_URL = ("http://portal.amfiindia.com/");

Save the file.

This change is needed because, the URL on the amfiindia.com website in IndiaMutual.pm is not http://portal.amfiindia.com.
