What amount of my margins can I use to trade in F&O?

The amount of margin that can be used to take positions in F&O is:

= Opening Cash Balance

+Cash Deposited

ā€“ Cash Withdrawn

+Value of shares currently pledged (post haircut)

+Value of Mutual Fund units currently pledged (post haircut)

+Value of Fixed Deposits pledged

ā€“ MTM loss on F&O during the day

For securities pledging, margin benefit gets added only after pledging is completed.

For securities unpledging, margin benefit gets removed as soon as the request is received, irrespective of the status of completion of unpledging.
