Margin Trading vs Cash Transactions at FYERS

How is Margin Trading different from a Cash segment transaction?

In the cash segment, settlements now occur on a T+1 basis. Here, the full exchange of payment and shares takes place between the buyer and seller. Margin Trading, on the other hand, involves trading with borrowed funds, allowing for potentially larger positions with a smaller capital outlay. Trades must be squared off within the day or as per the agreed terms.
