New rules starting 1 July 2018:

SEBI now requires brokers to maintain SPAN + Exposure margin in investors’ accounts for overnight positions. Accordingly, Zerodha has adjusted its margin requirements for all the FNO orders. These rules impact all the following:

  • FNO NRML – Carry forward position
  • FNO MIS – Margin Intraday Square Off positions. These orders allow additional margin and are valid from 10 am to 3:15 pm.
  • FNO CO/BO – Intraday Cover Order (CO) and Bracket Order (BO)
