Zerodha Margin Calculation for Equity


The Zerodha Margin Calculation for Equity seems to calculate the margin more than the calculation provided in the NSE’s website. Below is an example. Would there be any reason for this or am I doing some silly mistake?

Thank you!


The VAR + ELM margin for Airtel is 15.32%, can check it here and the margin required you’re seeing on NSE website according to this. But intraday leverages are now capped at a maximum of 5x, so a minimum 20% margin has to be collected, which will be displayed on Kite. Hence the difference.
