Coming August 2020, the investors who are willing to provide securities as margins will now have to pledge their holdings in favor of the broker as against the current mechanism where the investors either have to transfer shares to the Brokers or shares available in their own demat were considered as margin basis investor’s POA on DEMAT account to the Broker. In this process, as the securities remain in your own demat account, you will continue to enjoy all corporate action benefits on your securities and the entire trail of pledge / re-pledge will be readily available in your demat account statement.

As the `Margin Pledge’ process involves confirmation by client for creation of Margin Pledge, the clients’ are required to ensure that your mobile no., email id and registered client code with IIFL is mapped with the demat account. Once the Margin Pledge is confirmed/authenticated through OTP on the link provided by NSDL/CDSL, the securities will be pledged in favor of IIFL and the same are available for re-pledge to Clearing Member / Clearing Corporation. For all requests placed before 4:00 PM, the margin benefit will be provided on the next trading day. 

The steps involved for pledging securities for Margin purpose is as follows: 

STAGE – I - Initiation of Margin Pledge

The detailed process to initiate margin pledge shares is as follows:

(A) Through NSDL / CDSL using online Trader Terminal/ IIFL Markets Mobile App Client will have to login with valid credentials. 

1. Once logged in, the client will have to visit the Holdings tab on Dashboard. In the holdings tab, you will now be able to see the option of pledging securities. On clicking the option, the below page would appear which would contain the list of holdings that a client can pledge.
