Why are the OHLC values on daily and hourly charts different?

The minute and hourly candles are formed using the live data received from the exchange, which is not tick by tick and doesn’t include all the transactions in that time interval. Bu, the Open, High, Low, and Close (OHLC ) values for daily candles are updated again after the trading day ends, with  the bhavcopy data provided by the exchange. The data on bhavcopy is accurate, as it is formed using all the ticks that happened on the exchange.

However, because the exchange does not share minute or hourly OHLC for the day in bhavcopy, the minute or hourly charts are formed using the live feed that Zerodha receives from the exchange, while the daily charts are formed using the OHLC on the bhavcopy, resulting in a mismatch.
