Why i am i not able to take positions in illiquid option contracts?

I have been facing this issue like since long. The problem with Upstox is I cannot take position in most of the far dated options because it is illiquid. Where as i can easily take positions in such contracts with other brokers demat account. This is very very irritating.
Is there anything you guys can help me with

Hey @Krishna_kant,

Please note that currently trading is restricted in Stock Option contracts with a volume of less than 100. Also, far OTM/DEEP ITM Stock Options contracts will be blocked as well for trading.

You can read more about it here: uptx.to/illiquidOptn Let us know in case you’ve any other query!

Welcome to Upstox Community!

In order to avoid volatile market conditions, all stock options with trade volume less than 100 are put under illiquid state. You can read more here: https://uptx.to/illiquidOptn.

Do check and let us know if you are still facing the issue. Thanks.
