Changes in intraday leverages from September 2021As per SEBI regulations on peak margins, starting today, September 1, 2021, intraday leverages will be reduced to ensure 100% of the margin required is collected for all Equity and derivative positions. The minimum margin for equity intraday trades will be 20% of trade value (5X leverage) and for F&O, 100% of NRML margin (1X leverage). This reduction in intraday leverage will affect only those who use product types MIS and CO for additional margin.

Note: CO orders are not allowed across F&O segments.
