Debit balance

All clients are advised to make the payment before the pay-in time on the settlement day, though there are instances wherein client may delay the payment beyond the settlement date. Although, it is obligatory for a broker to meet the settlement obligation in time, therefore, in order to ensure timely receipt of funds from clients towards their payment obligation, “charges for delayed payment” are levied in the client’s account. The sum towards “charges for delayed payment” is levied to discourage delayed payment from clients who do not deposit the required sum of money before the payin time on the payin day. “Charges for delayed payment” are levied on the respective ledger debit of the clients at a rate of 0.05% per day of the debit balance in the account. For the purpose of reckoning debit balance, the debit balance in the client ledger is consolidated across all segments of the respective exchange giving effect to the release of margin.

Collateral Margins

  • You will be able to use this entire margin after haircut for taking intraday or overnight positions in Futures, and for writing Options of equities & indices. You will not be able to use this margin to buy Options or take further positions on the equity segment.
  • Exchanges stipulate that for F&O positions, 50% of the margin needs to compulsorily come in cash and the remaining 50% can be in terms of collateral margin. If you don’t have enough cash, your account will be in debit balance and there will be a delayed payment (interest) charges, charge of 0.035% per day applicable on the debit amount. So, if you take positions that require a margin of Rs 2 lakh, you will need at least Rs 1,00,000 in cash irrespective of how much collateral margin you have. Assuming you don’t have this Rs 1,00,000, whatever you are short by will be the debit balance for the day, and delayed payment (interest) charges will be applicable for that amount.
  • Liquid funds are considered as cash equivalents by the exchange, so the above 50% rule wouldn’t apply. The Margin received from pledging liquid funds will be as good as having cash in your trading account. All cash equivalent stocks are updated our link.
  • All delayed payment (interest) charges accumulated will be debited everyday on the ledger. A link to see cumulative delayed payment (interest) charges calculation can be found on the holding page itself.
