Hi Nithin

Can we use equity mutual funds as collateral margin? To be able to use MF as collateral, would I have to invest in mutual funds through Zerodha first? Let’s say I invest 10 lakhs in MF’s and pledge it, how much of that 10 Lakhs will I get to use as margin money? Let’s say the value of my mutual funds increases from 10 Lakhs to 11 Lakhs, The amount of margin I can use will increase too, right? Let’s say I invest another 5 lakhs, will i have to pledge that separately as well? Thanks.
