Why am I unable to pledge my holdings on Zerodha?

You will not be able to pledge your holdings if -

  1. Member-wise limit for your security is reached - The total quantity of each approved security that can be pledged is limited at the trading member level by the clearing corporation. You will not be able to pledge your holding if the overall maximum pledge limit has been reached for your stock/ETF. In such cases, you'll get the below message on Console when you try to pledge. 



  2. The derivative segment isn't active - You can pledge your holdings only if you have the equity derivatives segment (F&O) activated in your account. You can activate the F&O segment for your account on Console. You'll get the below message in case you try to pledge securities when the derivatives segment isn't active for your account.



  3. The Mutual Fund scheme is not accepted by the clearing corporation - You can pledge your mutual fund holdings only if it is accepted by the Clearing Corporation. You can check the list of all mutual fund ISINs which the Clearing Corporation (NSE Clearing Ltd) accepts on this sheet
