Will I be able to make BTST trades under the new Cash margin system?

The new regulations require at least 20% upfront margin before initiating a sell transaction. So you can only initiate a BTST transaction only if the net available margin displayed in the Funds section in the mobile app/web login is equal to or greater than net available margin. If the net available margin is less than 20% of the sale value, then your order will be rejected as per the RMS policy.
