Live: Now you can Pledge Government Securities on Dhan

Hi Everyone,

For Super Traders on Dhan - Margin Benefit that they get is an incredible experience - possibly the best in the industry. We have write about this at length over here - Full post: Margin Benefits & Pledge Shares Experience for Trading on Dhan

As we enabled Pledging of Shares on Dhan, we have kept on adding more and more securities that we can accept as collateral and cash equivalent for traders to get the max benefit for their trading.

From today, we are expanding this list of acceptable securities for pledging even further. On Dhan, we will be accepting Government Securities as pledge and yes - this will be considered as a Cash Equivalent.

Dhan users will be able to get 90% of collateral value as margin which can be used as Cash Equivalent.

Scrip Name ISIN Collateral Var % Collateral Benefit % Component consider as a Margin
610GS2031 IN0020210095 10.00 90.00 CASH COMPONENT
618GS2024 IN0020190396 10.00 90.00 CASH COMPONENT

Hi @riyas2831 ,

824GS2027 is not actively traded in secondary market, pledge allow for liquid and traded Gsec.

Hi @kuldeep ,
I am wondering when mutual funds and other bonds will be available for pledges in Dhan. Is there any possibility before launching a mutual fund platform in Dhan if we transfer from other platforms?

Hi @imsahadeb,

You can transfer Mutual Funds in Dhan via easiest but the same will not reflect in your portfolio. However, you can check the same on CDSL portal.

Hence, we suggest you to transfer the same once we are live.
