With regards to your query on margin against stocks. Please note that every broker collects margins in the form of cash, collateral (stocks), bank guarantees, and/or fixed deposits. It is a fairly normal practice with every broker to give margin to its clients for the securities held by the client in their Demat account.

Collateral margin facility on your holdings, you’ll get margin against those shares after the exchange prescribed haircut. For example, if you have stocks worth Rs. 100,000 in your account and if the exchange prescribed haircut is 15%, then the collateral value of your stocks will be Rs. 85,000.
