You can only download data that Google makes publicly available.

Go to http://www.google.com/finance/historical?q=NSE:RCOM
Now go to http://www.google.com/finance/historical?q=MSFT

Notice that the second page has a link on the right to "Download to
spreadsheet".  That link is missing from the NSE data, so you
shouldn't expect to be able to download NSE data with getSymbols.
