An interest rate of 9.5% p.a. is charged only on the utilized amount and for the number of days you utilize the amount. The interest is calculated on the utilized amount daily at the end of day, Interest = (utilized amount x interest rate)/ 365. The interest will be accrued till the end of month and will be due on 1st working day of every month. The same will be debited on the 3rd working day of next month from your registered Bank Account via NACH mandate. You will be notified on your registered email ID to maintain sufficient balance.

Example: Vijay availed a loan against securities by pledging equity securities of value Rs.10 lakhs and got an eligible limit of Rs.4.5 lakhs (assuming the pledged securities have an LTV of 45%). He made a withdrawal of Rs.1 lakh on 5th Jan 23 and Rs.1 lakh on 10th Jan 23. Vijay repaid Rs.1 lakh on 20th Jan 23 and Rs.1 lakh on 25th Jan 23. Vijay will receive an intimation on 1st Feb 23 to maintain sufficient balance to pay interest of [(9.5%/365) x {(5x1,00,000) + (10x2,00,000) + (5x1,00,000)}] = Rs.781 which will be auto debited on the 3rd Feb 23.

Securities value changes on a daily basis. Since the eligible limit of the loan account is dependent on the underlying collateral value (Eligible limit = collateral value x LTV%), the eligible limit of the loan account also changes as per change in collateral value. This revaluation of loan account happens on a daily basis. NAV as on previous day’s closing is considered to calculate collateral value.

Example: Arun has availed loan against securities by lien marking or pledging securities worth Rs 10 lakhs. The eligible limit of his account is Rs 4.5 lakhs (10 lakhs x 45% LTV) (assuming an LTV of 45%). If the value of underlying securities drops to 9.5 lakhs, the revised eligible limit will drop to 4.05 lakhs (9.5 lakhs x 45% LTV).

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 60 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% - 60 days
2. >50% >80% 7 days
3. >55% >85% 5 days
4. >60% >90% 3 days
5. >65% >95% 1 day

In case of interest bounce, the entire interest amount and other charges become overdue. The borrower will be requested to make overdue payment using the Pay Now facility. If the borrower fails to make overdue payment within 60 days, Mirae Asset Financial Services reserves the right to invoke/ sell the underlying securities to the extent of overdue amount and recover.

The account can also enter in overdue state if the value of securities drop and the utilized amount is more than the revised eligible limit. The difference between the utilized amount and the revised eligible limit in such case becomes overdue.

You may deposit additional cash equivalent to the overdue amount or deposit additional securities via top-up. If the pledged collateral value increases again the account is automatically regularized.

At present, it is not possible to digitally lien mark or pledge Mutual Funds held in demat form through Mirae Asset Financial Services.

Post the loan creation you can use the top-up facility to lien mark or pledge mutual funds from other RTA. You will get a single loan account with an eligible amount calculated based on mutual funds lien marked or pledged from both RTAs.

Note: Processing fee of Rs 999/- + Taxes will be applicable for the first loan & a Top-up fee of Rs 500/- + Taxes will be applicable for Top-up.
