Options - margin allowed?

Does zerodha allow margins on option trading? If I wanted to buy a put option on a stock, can I trade using margin? If yes, how do I do it? Grateful for guidance on this.

If you buy an option you pay premium. If you sell an option you keep margin and receive premium. Hope it’s clear.

Can I place BO with zerodha margins of say 20 times? Basically I am trying to trade options with less money.


If you are buying option then you have to pay full premium. but if you are selling option margin will be provided to you by zerodha.
if you have less money in your trading account then you can think about trading USDINR options.
