Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Varun for buying options there is no concept called margin. When buying you need the entire premium to buy, while shorting/writing options is when you need margin (which can be calculated using SPAN). When buying options we give additional intraday leverage only for Nifty/Banknifty. So if lot size is 100 and premium is Rs 10, you will need Rs 1000 to buy this.
