Margin requirement for square off option buy order

Let’s say I buy a call option @ 100
I want to have stoploss of 60. So I will place a separate GTT option sell order with order type SL LIMIT with trigger price @ 62 and limit price @ 60.
If lets say after 5 days, price reaches 62 ( gtt sell order SL trigger price). Do i need to have margin money in my account to square of that position as margin required for option selling is quit high.

Thanks in adv…

As you already have a buy position, when the sell gtt is triggered order will execute. It won’t ask for higher margin.
