      Hi Bhushan,
      Seems you got confused. We do provide online pledging of shares through our back office BOX. You are required to courier DIS for pledging shares only when you pledge shares for taking loan from bank etc… And not for getting higher exposure in the trading account that you have with us. Please refer our Margin Against Shares article for more information.
