Pledging equity shares

I want to pledge equity shares and obtain margin money for trading in F&O. I want to know the following: a) What are the various charges for pledging. Please mention one time fee and recurring fees/interest if any b) Normal time it takes to pledge and unpledge c) Anything else, I need to be aware off

  • ICICIdirect Executive Thank you for the query. With regards to your query,
    For F&O and Equity positions, margin can be given by Specified securities (by way of pledging securities allocated from your demat account in favour of I-Sec).
    The limit granted is a sum of Cash & Specified securities and the margin is blocked on the individual positions on the overall basis and not in any proportion of Cash & Specified securities
    Though securities limit is granted for exposure to F&O and Equity positions, actual payment is required for settlement dues arising from mark-to-market losses on futures positions, premium payments for options bought, square off losses on futures,options and equity positions and brokerage applicable on the transactions.
