Comment on Option buying: The riskiest trade out there

Your efforts in trying to educate people about not buying options and futures would only realize when you provide them the way to short options by hedging. A retailer buys options only because he is forced to. Most traders who have a capital of 1L can’t short options first. We don’t have the capital to trade option strategies by shorting first.
You guys have given the option to move to the alternate clearing agency to trade options, but one can’t take delivery of shares there. How is this a complete solution then? I was forced to open alternate trading account but I have been spoilt by the smooth interface of zerodha. So, I request you guys to find a permanent solution to the OI restriction.
