It’s fairly easy to know how much margin has been utilized for your positions by checking the View Limits screen by going to Surveillance < RMS Limits < View Limits on Zerodha Trader. You can also do this using the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + V.
You can get this information even on your web-based or mobile trading terminal.

In the View Limits window, you can view various columns to know what’s the current cash position in your account. Check out the image given below:

Observe that this client has two accounts – Equity and Commodity. You can right click on the column profile on top and add/remove columns based on your requirement. The columns shown here are the most important columns so you can be aware about your position.

Let’s look at all the columns in brief:
Cash Margin Avail: In EQ, the client has Rs. 211,413 plus he has done a payin of Rs. 100000. Whereas in Commodity, the client has 456004; no fresh payin has been done today.
Pay In Amount: Remember that all your payins done from our secure payment gateway showup in the Pay In Amount column on View Limits. If you do NEFT/RTGS, it shows the next day directly in your Cash Margin.
Margin Utilized: This column shows SPAN + Exposure margin blocked for Futures or writing of Options. It shows you cash blocked for EQ trades or for buying options. It also shows you the MTM Profits/Losses for you positions on an intraday basis. Remember that if you have sold CNC positions in EQ, the Margin Utilized column will add those funds.
