Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Nithin, Thanks for your reply.
Yeah, Now if i see both links throws the same margin of Rs. 27,580. However, I beg to differ with you on the minimum margin needed @15% for stock futures. I know for sure that ICICI Sec takes around 10.5-11% as initial margin for stocks like LT, SBI,HDFC Bank. However, I appreciate Zerodha giving higher leverage on intraday basis. I don’t have an account with Zerodha yet and was planning to have one shortly. Could you please throw some light on the end of day MTM profit/loss adjustments and margin release/call policy that Zerodha follows? As in, do i need to maintain funds in the trading account or it can be debited/credited from/to the linked bank account? Also, is simplified P&L statement/portfolio tracker etc provided within the web platform to enable tax calculation? Finally, your views on the minimum lot size increased by SEBI recently?
