Risk based margin in F&O


Most of us are aware of the margining system in the west where they collect margin to the extent of one’s risk for hedged positions, that gives the trader the flexibility to manage his own leverage and strategize.

I keep reading news articles where brokers are constantly in touch with SEBI and Stock Exchanges for flexibility in margin. Zerodha now being the top broker in India, I assume @nithin must be aware of the developments for such a margin system in India. So my question to @nithin, is there any hope for such a system in India? Is NSE or SEBI working on or even considering such a system? Eventually, I guess that might happen but are there any plans for now?


As I know there are no plans as such from regulators for now.
