Before enabling Equity Plus for your account there are few details which you need to know:

  • Margin required / Exposure limits:  EquityPlus will enable you to get a higher exposure for delivery. You can buy delivery up to 4 times your cash balance. For example, if you have 1 lac in your account you can still buy stocks up to 4 lacs.
  • Securities that can be purchased in Equity Plus: SAS publishes a List of securities available for trading under this product. SAS may add or delete securities to this list based on market conditions. Clients shall be required to square off immediately existing open positions if any deletion of stock takes place.
  • Delayed Payment Charges:  These charges will be applicable at 0.05% per day on the total ledger debit. If there is no ledger debit at the end of the day, no interest will be charged.
  • Trading Platform: It will be available for all ALPHA platforms (Desktop, Mobile, and Browser) and NEST (Desktop).
  • Subscription charges:  NIL
  • Maximum Limit: The maximum available funding per client has been limited to 1.5 CR. EquityPlus is all about leverage and leverage is a double-edged sword, amplifying profits & losses to the same degree, resulting in huge losses if the market moves against expectations. By putting these limits our intention is to protect our clients from any unintentional risk.  
  • Product type to be chosen for placing the order: The order will have to be placed with the product type NRML and squared off as CNC. Shares bought with product type MIS or CNC can be converted into NRML on the same day itself and vice versa. 
  • Corporate Action: In case of any corporate action in the stocks bought in NRML the corporate action benefits (except rights issue) will be transferred to your account. In case of a bonus/split, the additional shares will be delivered to your holdings which you can sell in CNC to release the margin blocked.  
  • Risk Square-off: The client would be required to deposit additional margin to the trading account in case there is a fall in the market value of the portfolio. The client would be required to top up by either transferring funds or reducing holding in Equity Plus when Equity Plus Actual Cash vs Share %  goes below 20 %. South Asian Stocks Ltd. reserves the right to liquidate client positions with or without notice in any case if Equity Plus Actual Cash vs Share %  goes below 20%. 
  • Activation Criteria: Minimum 50,000 balance is required in the trading account at the time of activation. 

Further, Client shall receive all confirmation of orders/trades, margin calls, decisions to liquidate the position/security on registered mail Id.

MTF Policy: As per circular all collateral stock and the funded stock would be required to be held by way of margin pledge in your DP account itself, for the pledging process and SAS MTF (Margin Trading Funding) policy kindly refer to this Link.
