There is no restriction or limit to number of lots that can be bought/sold provided you have enough margin with the broker. Currently around 30K for NRML and around 12K for MIS for one lot. You can check for latest margin requirements and use the calculator to determine number of lots on the following link -

In an order there is a limit of 200 lots. 

Overall, you as a client can take positions upto 5% of the total open interest of the contract. 

You can find more information here.

Max. Quantity: 10,000 (200 LOTS x 50)

Ajay, I think there is a stipulated maximum number of lots you can buy/sell in one order… depending on the total value of all the contracts combined… though am unsure of the exact number…

Yeah as Nithin mentioned in his reply 200 contracts/order but one can place multiple such orders as long as it does not exceed 5% of total OI as mentioned in his reply.
Any ways from retail trader perspective even 200 /order is as good as no restriction since it would require 25 lac margin for intra day and 75 lac for NRML.

Does anyone know what is the latest limit (No. of Lots / order)?

The link provided by @nithin is no more valid.

You can check the quantity freeze limits for all F&O securities here.
