Pledging govt securities in zerodha for margin


#1

Can we pledge govt securities in zerodha such as treasury bills or govt bonds for margin.


#2

Hey @Prateek_Gupta

Presently we do not allow pledging of Gsecs, but we are working on enabling pledging soon.


#3

When can we expect of margin on gsecs would be available


#4

Is the pledging of Gsec enabled , as of today ? If not, any tentative timelines ?


#5

Not as today, can’t provide exact time but we are working on this, will announce once we come up with this.


#6

Siva, On one other post Nithin mentioned that GSec is now available for pledging. Can you provide us more on this?


#7

This will be available soon once inter depository transfer is allowed for gsecs.


#8

@siva Is there a proposal in place to allow inter-depository transfer for Gsecs ? Can we as investors/traders do anything to expedite the process viz. through petitions etc. ?


#9

We as a broker also want to this happen ASAP, we are getting answers that it will take a week or two all the times we approach, hope this will be sorted soon.


#10

eagerly waiting. Hope we can pledge g-secs soon


#11

Any update on this


#12

There is no update on inter depository settlement yet. We are waiting for this restriction to be lifted first.


#13

Can you guys give an estimate of margins, the we can expect to see in future for g-sec if everything goes well.
