Why sorting in cash is not possible. but in futures it is?

Since in both the cash we don’t have stock in demat account.

You can short in cash, but you can’t carry forward you cash short intraday positions to next day, you have to cover your positions before 3.20 p.m

Why sorting can’t be carried forward as we do in future. In both we don’t have stock in demat.

Futures are a contract which are cash settled on expiry day so if you short it today you can carry forward that position till expiry day of the contract you don’t have to deliver those shares while if you short in cash you will have to deliver shares on the day of shorting or you can sqoff your position.
