Niftybees as Collateral

Hello Experts,

I have question regarding using Niftybees or any ETFs as Collateral.
I am aware there is some haircut after which the entire margin is available.
But due to recent SEBI regulation, Is Liquidbees or any ETF’s are considered as cash equivalent or not ? Or do we still need to maintain 50% as cash margin like stock collateral?

Can someone please clarify this?

I would like to use this margin for positional Option selling with hedging.

Thank you

Thank you @Stonecold.

One last question is liquid MF is also considered cash equivalent?

Did you check the Google Sheet? :slightly_smiling_face:

Dear All,

Do all brokers allow NIFTYBEES as collateral? Axis direct, ICICI direct etc?
