What is the difference between 'Positions' and 'Holdings'?

I am new to trading and when I buy any shares using CNC, it shows the same under ‘Positions’ and ‘Holdings’. Please tell the difference between the two terms.

“Positions” is something which you have bought or sold as on current day (intraday), whereas “Holdings” is something which you have bought as delivery or BTST.

NaMasTe TraDeR,

All CNC purchase or sale of shares before been transferred to or from the DEMAT are shown as positions. The books are tallied after market close. After your contract notes are prepared, overnight your today’s POSITIONS are transferred to or deducted from your demat HOLDINGS.
