As you can see in the above given picture, the application also provides a brief explanation as to how pledging works. After pledging your stocks you receive an OTP which needs to be entered on the CDSL website for authorization. After about 30 mins you should receive your margin on your pledged shares.

In case you get logged out or your device shuts down in the midst of the pledge request, you can go to the CDSL website and enter the OTP there in order to continue the pledge.

You need to ensure that mobile/e-mail ID are updated in your DEMAT account details. If at any time you feel like not going through with the pledge, you can simply refrain from entering the OTP, post which your request will automatically expire.
