ICICIdirect Executive Thank you for the query. We would like to inform you that with MARGIN TRADING FUNDING (MTF ) you pay a small initial margin to buy stocks today and repay the balance amount in 365 days.
In order to buy stocks under margin products, a part of the amount needs to be paid initially. This amount is termed as Initial Margin. Margin differs across stocks and is different for different products. To view Initial and Minimum margin for any stock, visit Stock List page on www.icicidirect.com. You can estimate the margin amount by calculating it as a percentage of total position value. For example, if Mr. X buys 100 shares of ABC Ltd in Margin Trading at Rs.100 per share, the total value of his purchase becomes Rs. 10,000. If initial margin applicable on ABC Ltd is 30%, it means Mr.X will only have to pay Rs. 3000 to take position in this stock and will get 1 year to back the remaining Rs. 7000.

ICICIdirect Executive Thank you for the query. We would like to inform you that with the introduction of Pledge Model in September 2020, it is now mandatory for customers to pledge their shares purchased under Margin Trading. Pledging is mandatory for creating limits against demat shares as well.
ICICIdirect Executive On behalf of Mr. Saurav Sultania (Vice President - Equity Product Group): Yes we do credit the dividend to your account in margin trading if you held the position open as on record date. This becomes one key reason for customers to take position in MTF as part of interest cost is taken care of through dividend.
