How to pledge securities to get collateral margin?

Securities can be pledged between 8 AM and 6 PM on trading days. However, there are no restrictions on unpledging. The cost of pledging is ₹30 + GST per request, per ISIN, irrespective of the quantity pledged. There are no charges for unpledging. To learn more about pledging, see What is pledging, and how does it work? The F&O segment must be activated to pledge holdings. To learn the process of activating F&O, see How to activate F&O?

To pledge securities, follow these steps:
