Where does pending "used margin" go?


I had asked for this doubt before but it remains unclear. Hence I am asking with an explicit example.

I had squared off all my index options positions and no order is pending. Used margin is shown as ₹26,245. Will this amount be added to “Available Cash” or “Available Margin” ? or it is just for depiction and vanish tomorrow? Where is it used ( as I don’t hold any positions )

For eg : Please refer to the screenshot below.


Hi @Mahadevan-Iyer

Used margin is added immediately to Available margin once the positions are squared off.

That’s correct. It depicts the margins used during that particular day. Once the day is over, the used margin field for that day becomes zero
