SEBI margin rules explain in layman’s language:
SEBI has changed some rules related to margin and trading.
1) Buying and selling of shares will Require Upfront margin from now onwards.
Eg: If you want to buy Reliance shares worth 1lakh, you must have 20k Rs in your account as cash and the rest money to be paid within 2 days…
👆🏻 Major Change If you want to sell 1 lac worth of Reliance shares from your holdings for that scenario also you must have min 20k rs in your account. Failing which penalties will be levied.
👆🏻 Read Carefully… Selling from holding will also require Upfront margin in cash (Var+ELM).
You can keep extra cash or can pledge other holdings for the stipulated margin required.
2) Shares bought today cannot be sold Tomorrow.
Implications: BTST Closed
Eg You bought Reliance On Monday. You can only sell those shares after receiving the delivery of shares. T+2 you can sell on Wednesday.
You can only sell the shares after you receive in Your DP/only after receiving the delivery of shares.
3) Shares Sold Today from delivery….. the funds cannot be used for new trades today. You can use the funds for new trades the next day.
Eg: You sold 100,000 Rs worth of Reliance’s shares today.
You cannot use this money to buy fresh shares of other companies.
