The securities in the overdraft account are revalued everyday. If the value of your securities drops, the eligible limit of your overdraft account also drops, (revised collateral value x LTV%). If the utilized amount is more than the revised eligible limit, the difference between the eligible limit and the utilized amount is considered to be overdue. In such cases a demand is made asking the borrower to clear the overdue amount either by making payment towards the overdue amount or pledging additional securities. This is known as a margin call. The borrower needs to clear the overdues in stipulated time as per below table. If their value increases, your eligible limit automatically increases and if utilized amount is less than revised eligible limit then your account will not have overdue amount.

Example: Arun has pledged securities of worth Rs.10 lakhs and has created an OD account with eligible loan limit of Rs.4.5 lakhs (45% of 10 lakhs). Arun has utilized this entire limit by withdrawing Rs.4.5 lakh. If the value of the pledged securities drops to Rs.9.5 Lakhs due to market volatility. The eligible limit is revised to Rs.4.27,500 (45% of 9.5 lakhs). Since the utilized amount is more than the eligible amount, Arun will receive a margin call of Rs.22,500 (4,50,000-4,27,500). Since the utilized amount falls within the initial range (45 to 50%) as shown in the table below, he has a grace period of 75 days to clear the overdue amount in his loan account.

Sr. No Shares/Equity Mutual Funds LTV Debt Mutual Funds LTV No. of days to regulate
1. >45% - 75 days
2. >50% >80% 7 days
3. >55% >85% 5 days
4. >60% >90% 3 days
5. >65% >95% 1 day
