Comment on Online pledging of stocks for trading F&O

Hi, I had Kotak trading account before shifting to Zerodha and I noticed they were providing margins based on the stock holdings as a percentage of stock value based on the quality of stock (with out any pledge) which can be used in F&O or cash market trading also. I am not sure if Zerodha has any such options. Suppose I have 900K holding in my portfolio and I don’t want to pledge any particular stock but get some 300K margin for trading (may be with an overall sell restriction for the portfolio based on the margin utilized), is it possible? It will be very helpful if this option is there like it was there in Kotak securities, this will allow us to utilize our holdings anytime without pledging and with adequate safely for Zerodha because of overall restriction on selling holding beyond a point when margins are used. Thanks!
