How does pledging stocks help?

You may pledge stocks for short term and long term funding. Short term funding is where stocks are pledged to get additional leverage in F&O segment. The long term funding is called as MTF (Margin Trade Funding). 

As seen in the video, there are two options available to pledge stocks. One is the Margin Pledge funding and the other is the MTF Collateral pledge request. To avail collateral benefit for F&O trades, use the margin pledge option and to avail funding under MTF use MTF Collateral pledge option.
