Union Budget 2017 - Margin requirements

Announcement of the Union Budget 2017 is scheduled for Wednesday, the 1st of Feb 2017. Owing to the expected volatility, intraday leverage across product types (MIS,BO,CO) will be lower than usual for Equity, F&O, and Currency segments. Intraday Margins for the Commodity segment will remain the same.

Margin requirements will revert to normal as soon as the volatility subsides.

Please ensure you maintain sufficient margins throughout the day to ensure positions with shortfall do not get squared off.
