Tbill as Collateral for Margin

Can Tbills be used as margin for option selling?

Tried Checking Government Securities list in the Approved list of Securities at Zerodha but wasnt clear.

Also hows the liquidity for Tbills/Govt Securities in secondary market.

T bills and state govt bonds can’t be pledge , you can only pledge G sec

Owing to complexities in unpledging T-Bills nearing maturity, they cannot currently be pledged. You can pledge G-Secs.

Liquidity in secondary market is low for T-Bills, G-Secs and other bonds.
