Placing a hedging order for Nifty F&O?

Lets say i place nifty futures buy order @ 9200. Margin money for that would be 55,000. If i decide to hedge my futures position with buying put option @9250, i will get Margin benefit.

How can i place the order to get margin benefit. Do i need to place Put option order before buying futures contract.

Yes, you will get a slight margin benefit. Once you purchase the Put, your margin requirement for Nifty will be reduced. Check the SPAN calculator for this -
