Hi fyers team, Can you explain with the change in policy regarding 50-50 cash component is mandatory from October 10th 2022. Also can tell what is the current margin usage and post October 10 2020. Earlier, if a client A has 10lkhs in cash balance. He can invest in stocks or MFs and pledge them for collateral margin. So, in client A has invested in stocks worth 10L and pledged them. The collateral he receive is 8 L assuming 20 % hair cut. The client can utilise 8L for FnO postions both intraday and overnight. With new change in policy to utilize the collateral margin of 8L does he have to bring additional 8L as cash?. That he needs to 18 L total in his account?
