The quantity for cumulative bidding would be made available online for the market across the trading session at different intervals to take care of the orders that carries 100 percent upfront margin and also of the orders which have been placed without the upfront margin. The indicative price of the market would be disclosed for the market across the trading session and is calculated on the basis of bids and orders.

The non-institutional investors it is mandatory to pay in cash the 100 percent of upfront margin

Facilities available

The upfront margin paid by both the institutional and non-institutional investors can be cancelled or modified up to 100 percent even during the trading hours
Institutional investors would not be able to modify or cancel their orders until they pay their upfront margin but they can make upward revision of the price or quantity

Provisions available for Institutional Investors

•    The investors who have placed their bids or orders with 100 percent upfront margin, they can take the custodian confirmation within trading hours, with provisions of settlements within T+1 (trading plus one day) and in case of trading without upfront margin it can be done on T+1 and settlement can be on T+2 as it would be followed by the secondary market transactions.
