Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Hi,
The SPAN Calculator is indeed an excellent tool, thanks for that.
I have a doubt while shorting the options. As you mentioned in the example, while shorting the option effectively only 18300 gets blocked, so can we short an option with just 18300 in our account or do we need the whole amount 31625 first and then after position is taken, we are refunded?
Also, if we short the option using MIS, how much of the total margin amount is premium receivable?
