Refer to this FAQ from NSE. This covers the criteria based on which stocks are moved to ASM and also the surveillance actions applicable to these stocks.

Note: In cases where a stock you have pledged is moved under ASM, you will no longer be provided collateral margins for that stock, because, as per ASM 100% margin should be levied. The collateral value (shown on the trading terminals) will reduce by the value of collateral received against that stock.
You can either un-pledge the stock or keep the stock pledged without collateral until the stock is moved out of ASM.
