Hello Faisal,

Request you to address below queries:
1.If I have ITM Call option and I am unable to bring the required margin and for some reasons Zerodha couldn’t sqr off before Tursday closing, what are the consequences? i.e. what will be the gain amount to me?
2. Following Excerpt from above is not clear to me. Whether the client will get any of Rs 9600? or whether you guys will buy and sell simultaneously?

“For example: If you are long 1 lot of WIPRO Oct 19 240 CE and let it expire and WIPRO(Stock) settles at Rs. 243, this contract will be a CTM contract. The intrinsic value of this contract will be 3 [243-240] x 3200(lot size) = Rs 9600.

Post-market closing we will check if the client’s free balance (Cash balance + Rs 9,600) > Rs 2,76,518 ( Twice the SPAN +Exposure margin for WIPRO Oct future contract). If client balance is lesser than Rs 2,76,518, this position will be marked as “Do not exercise” and the option contract will expire worthless. If the balance is more than the SPAN+Exposure, we will let the option be exercised, resulting in physical delivery. All costs arising out of such delivery obligations will be applied to the client’s account.”
