Effective 1st December 2020, the SEBI regulation regarding peak margins has changed the way sell amounts get credited from your Demat or T1 holdings. Here’s how it impacts you.
Selling a share from your Demat holdings:
80% of the sell amount is available for trading on the same day
The remaining 20% will be available for trading from T+1 Trading day onwards
100% of the sell amount will be available for withdrawal from T+2 Trading days onwards
Selling a share from your T1 holdings:
No Funds from the sell transaction will be available for trading on the same day
100% of the total sell amount will be available for trading only from T + 1 Trading day onwards
100% of the total sell amount will be available for withdrawal from T + 2 Trading days onwards
Here’s an example:
Please note: In case there is a bank or trading holiday between the date of selling to T+2 Trading day, the settlement period will be extended accordingly.
A quick recap on what are T1 holdings:
Any stocks that are still in transit between the Exchange and Upstox i.e. have still not completed the T+2 Trading days settlement cycle will be listed under the ‘T1 Holdings’ tab on the Upstox web and mobile app. This signifies that as of now, the stock has not yet been successfully credited to your Demat account.
