Collateral in Alice blue

In zerodha, for option selling min 50% margin should come from cash (or equivalent) and remaining can come from pledged shares.

Is this restriction specific to zerodha? As per examples given on Alice blue it seems that they doesn’t have this 50:50 cash requirement.


Refer Different Pledging Systems of Different Brokers of Indian Share Market - Reviews - Unofficed

  1. Upstox and Zerodha demand extra cash components.
  2. AliceBlue, 5paisa, Angel Broking, IIFL does not take it.
  3. But Brokers like StoxKart - You don’t even need to pledge it. You get immediate collat (The old method.)

Now this is hotchpotch and mess!
