Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Hello Nithin,

I am trying to learn the Margin trading on *NIFTY options* and have experience in NRML trading. I tried exploring Span calculator but the page was not properly displaying eventhough i tried refreshing several times and it did not work on IE and chrome browsers. the issue was that the script dropdown list was not populated with details irrespective of what i select in Exchange and Product. Is there any issue now (29 Jan 2014).

My another question is: To know the Margin amount for Margin trading on Nifty options, I logged into Backoffice and downloaded the “Margin Details and Position Limits” is this the right file to learn about today’s Margin leverages?

in that file I read the rows but could not understand certain technical terminologies, could you please help me to understand those, the details are here below
