MTM (Marked to Market) is nothing but your daily P&L compared to previous closing price. As markets moved higher on 24th December, your 30300 PE was in loss of around 311 points (311 * 25 = Rs. 7,775 loss for the day).

Also, the Option you bought had increased in value after you bought, so the 7,775 loss is essentially you giving away your profit. Though you are still in minor profit of Rs. 186 as you bought this at 280 and CMP is around 286.

bro… you bought it at 280 and this option closed around 600 on wednesday at this time you would have been in profit of around 8000… so on 24th this option value fell by over 300 points and you made loss of around 7800… simple.
