Margin Requirements via API

Hi team,

Currently we have to rely on '' for checking margins of individual F&O contracts. Is there any plan to introduce this via API, where if the details are passed, it will return the margin required. This will be very helpful.

    I am afraid we can't provide an API for this as of now.
    We may provide it in the future if everything is feasible.

    Have we thought about opening the API to fetch margin and span for the given stocks and futures?

    @cheko You can pull futures and stock margin files and calculate margins basis that

    As mentioned by @tahseen, you can get instruments margins data and do the calculations at your end. You can refer to this thread to know more about the endpoints.

    Is there any way to get options margin via API?. Zerodha has made API available to get margins for FUTURES and EQUITY.

    No, we don't APIs for options margin. You go through this thread.
