The new margin system will not impact the trader who already brings in full margins upfront. Nothing changes for them. However, shares purchased for delivery cannot be sold BTST since they need to be credited to the demat account before selling the shares. Also, when shares are sold, the credit will not be available to you for trading on the same day, but only on the next trading day i.e. T+1 basis.

Regarding market volumes impact, we really need to wait and watch how it pans out. But, generally, any such moves in the past have been favourable to markets. For example, the market volumes have only improved post STT, post-Badla ban, post introduction of F&O trading etc. One thing is certain that 100% peak margins will make the markets safer, steadier and more credible. That should attract a large number of retail investors.
