Comment on Online pledging of stocks for trading F&O

Teena commented on 09 Mar 2016, 08:30 AM

I have 45K in cash and enter an open option position (Put option) on 7 March, margin being 35K approx.
I pledged shares on 8 March, and received the margin on 8th March. Now I have 48K as collateral and 10K in cash.
Will the cash requirement of 50% get merged with my old position created on 7th March in case I create a new short position, our I will require additional cash for my new position?
