Your broker will let you know if an option that you sold is exercised.

The exchanges select option sellers on random basis.

The assignment of the option on stocks exercised by the buyer is random. This means, if the option holder decides to exercise his option before the call option expires, the stock exchange would randomly assign the option to one of the sellers

Whether the broker will let me know in Online or offline (say next day or something like that) ?

Because If I want to do this option trading for my hedging purpose, then I may need to know it online. So, that I can take that appropriate step after that.

Thanks in Advance.

that depends on your broker.

who is your broker?

only deep-in-the-money are exercised.

otherwise option buyers prefer to sell the options in the open market, so that they can get the "time value' too.

I am not sure, but I think you will get an email.

Large brokerage houses don't call retail clients in such matters.

===============================

As far as margins are concerned, writing an option is similar to a futures position.

the initial margin has to be maintained - even when you have a profit in the position.

mtm margin covers any loss that your option position may be having.

the broker will add initial and mtm margins and then ask for the net figure.

margins keep changing.

The margins can exceed 100% in periods of extremely volatility.

I think the minimum margin for selling stock options is 7.5%.

see this link.

Is it necessary to exercise option, if the option is in money.

Suppose I buy 1 lot (lot size 200 shares) of Infosys PA-2600. If the closing price is 2599. I will get Rs 1 per share on exercise. So I will get Rs 200.

But the expenses of exercising the option will be:
STT : 650(2600 * 200 * .125/100)
Brokerage: Around Rs 260(2600 * 200 * .05/100).

So I need to pay around 910 to get 200. Nobody will want to exercise this option.

No.

The exchanges will settle the open position.

All in-the-money options are cash-settled on expiry.

No, I will get Rs 200 if my option is in money. But I need to pay STT of Rs 650 and brokerage of Rs 260. So I need to pay Rs 710 for my in-money option.

So I conclude maximum loss is not limited to the premium paid + brokerage at the time of purchase. There can be more losses, if the option is slightly in the money.
