Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

tanmay karkhanis commented on 16 Jun 2017, 03:53 PM

hi Nithin,

yesterday i shorted 10 lots each of 9600 call and put.
i was charged the margin for 20 lots.

But actually when we short both call and put of same expiry, v should pay the margin for only 10 lots and not 20.
At least this is wht my previous brokers used to do. So why do zerodha charge margin for 20 lots?
