The fourth and final stage of Peak Margin requirement kicks in from 1st September 2021. The margins required for Intra-day trades are therefore, higher from September 1st than what was required till 31st August, 2021 as seen in the table below.  In fact, full margin is now required to trade in derivatives. In cash segment, where Intra-day trades are allowed only on stocks that trade in F&O segment as well, the peak margin requirement is increased to 20%. To know more on this read our blog ‘It’s not the Peak Yet!’


Here is a short view of the Margin requirement from 1st September, 2021

From Sep '21
Cash Segment  Total Exchange Margin or 20% of Traded Value, whichever is higher 
Derivatives (Futures & Options Selling)
100% of SPAN + Exposure + Additional Margin, if any 



We were earlier collecting a minimum of 15% of margin for MIS Equity Cash and 75% for MIS Derivatives. With the increased margin requirement, we are now revising our margin requirement to minimum 20% for MIS Equity Cash and 100% for MIS Derivatives. The same applies for Cover and Bracket Orders as well. Kindly note that CO and BO are currently not offered for Equity Options, Commodity Options & Currency Derivatives. 

Hence, kindly check the scrip-wise margin requirement as per the attached file to plan your trading from Wednesday, 1st September, 2021. For more details on margins and products read here
