Example scenario

1 lot of crude oil is bought at ₹6,214. The margin required is ₹3,58,101. In addition to this, 0.01% of the transaction value i.e 0.01% ₹6,21,400 ( ₹6,214 * 100 (1 lot is 100 BBL) ). The margin now will be ₹3,58,101 + ₹62.14 = ₹3,58,163.14

Assuming that a sell order was closed for the same price, the blocked margin would be released. However, the used margin on Kite will reflect ₹62.14. To learn what is used margin, see What does margin available and margin used mean?
