Client Margin Reporting
Clearing Members (CMs) and Trading Members (TMs) are required to collect upfront initial margins and extreme loss margins from all their Trading Members/ Constituents.
CMs are required to compulsorily report, on a daily basis, details in respect of the margin amount due and collected, from the TMs/ Constituents clearing and settling through them, with respect to the trades executed/ open positions of the TMs/ Constituents, which the CMs have paid to NSE CLEARING, for the purpose of meeting margin requirements.
Similarly, TMs are required to report on a daily basis details in respect of the margin amount due and collected from the constituents clearing and settling through them, with respect to the trades executed/ open positions of the constituents, which the trading members have paid to the CMs, and on which the CMs have allowed initial margin limit to the TMs.
CMs/ TMs are required to report details of initial margins and extreme loss margins collected from their TMs/ Constituents by uploading files to the /CDSFTP/X <CODE>/COLAT/UPLD directory on the Extranet Server or by uploading the files through the Collateral Interface for Members (CIM).
