Securities Segment – Member Common Collateral

Purpose of SGF or Member Common Collateral (with effect from 27th November, 2023):

The margins towards members' Outright and Repo trades in Securities Segment are being drawn out of Securities Segment SGF. The said SGF is also utilised towards margin requirements in other segments such as Forex (USD/INR), CLS, Forex Forward and Rupee Derivatives are also drawn out of Securities Segment SGF.

CCIL has introduced  Clearing Member structure in its Securities Segment from March, 2020.  In terms of the same members are required to maintain distinct collateral towards their own (proprietary) trades and Constituent trades.  Clearing members can contribute cash / securities towards individual constituent and group of constituents. A Clearing Member who has contributed SGF for a group of Constituents shall report to CCIL, the value (in Rupees) of the margin allocated by it for each of the Constituents in that group.

The margins towards constituent trades are drawn out of the Constituent collateral contribution by the concerned clearing member.

As stated above the margins for Forex Settlement, Forex Forward, CLS and Rupee Derivatives Segments are drawn out of Securities Segment SGF. Hence Securities Segment member membership becomes pre requisite for becoming a member of CCIL in any other segment. Over period of the growth of the markets has necessitated a need to delink the SGF from a particular business segment and put in place a common structure across segments.

Further, the Clearing Member structure has provided a flexibility wherein members can choose a different Clearing Member in different segments, Flexibility is also provided so that a member in Securities Segment can be a Constituent in other segment or vice versa.

In order to achieve the above with effect from 27th November, 2023, CCIL has introduced the 'Member Common Collateral'(MCC) structure. With this collateral contribution MCC shall not be tagged to a specific segment and member / constituent active in segments which are eligible for collateral utilisation from MCC can contribute collateral to the MCC. The operational process flow for cash/ security deposit as well as for withdrawal shall remain the same as is hitherto followed for SGF and the Collateral Work Flow Process has been notified to members and available on our web site under Notifications dated 27th October, 2023. 



Members shall contribute  cash and eligible securities to MCC. Members are required to maintain a minimum of 10% of their Securities Segment margin requirements in the form of cash contributions to MCC. Members have the option to maintain their entire contribution in the form of Cash.

The balance contribution can be held in the form of eligible Government of India Securities / Treasury Bills as notified by CCIL from time to time.

The cash : securities ratio towards margin requirement in Forex Forward and Rupee Derivatives Segment is 95:5 i.e. minimum 5% of margin requirement in respective segment needs to be maintained in cash.

No minimum cash contribution / ratio is prescribed towards Forex Settlement (USD/INR) and CLS Segment.
