Risk Management Policy:

Right to sell clients’ securities or close existing position of a client, without giving notice to the client.

As per clause 5 of the agreement entered between the client and the stock broker, the stock broker is entitled to liquidate/close-out all or any of the client’s positions for non-payment of margins or other amounts, outstanding debts, etc. and adjust the proceeds of such liquidation/close-outs, if any, against the clients liabilities/obligations.

Any client having negative ledger due to MTM losses or unsettled obligation will have to regularize the same by transferring funds or selling off collaterals by T+2 (T+1 in case of MTM obligations) failing which necessary action will be taken by the broker to regularize the account.

Also, in the event of persisting margin shortfall / ledger debits the F&O position would be squared off and later on adequate collaterals will be squared off to recover the Mark to Market losses in case no action is initiated by the client or his authority.

For the above purpose, Risk Management team of the Stock-broker will take into consideration the applicable margin/collateral requirement based on the set standards considering the risk element involved in the same. The applicable haircuts for acceptable scrips for the margin/collateral by the stock broker are available for the clients in the trading section under Stock List under collateral master.

The above policy is applicable for overdue and/ or shortage in payment not made by the client whether arising out of margin shortfall or on account of pay/ in payout obligations. Margins of the client will be monitored intra-day during the market hours, and the position or collaterals of the client may be liquidated, at the discretion of the Company, in case of any shortfall without any notice to the client. While arriving at the amount of margin shortfall or obligation due, the Company reserves the right to consider/disregard cheques and securities under clearance. The client is requested to keep a track of their margin positions and ensure that appropriate margins are placed with the Company at all points of time to avoid any forceful square up. The Company, at its discretion may in addition or on a standalone basis levy delayed payment charges and/ or additional penalties.

In terms of the above policy, any and all losses and financial charges on account of such liquidation/closing-outs shall be charged to and borne by the client.
