Hi Kshiteesh

thanks for answering, can you please also answer on below

so if the covered call option has to be excercised ( if the price of stock becomes more than my strike price) then will the stock be automatically debited from my account thus settling the trade? i ask this beacuse on NSE i heard it is cash settlement only …thank you


Physical/delivery based settlement is presently not applicable on all F&O stocks, its presently applicable to these 50 stocks.

So, if you’ve written a covered call in any of these scrips, you will have delivery obligation if the option goes in the money.

You can check out this support article to know our policy on physical settlement.
