Call-Put Parity

P + S = C + E * [1/(1+i)] ^n     where:

 
   P = the market price of the put
   S = the market price of the stock
   C = the market price of the call
   E = the exercise price of both the call and the put
   i = the risk free rate ( taken as 5.5 %)
   n = the number of years until the expiration date of the options

 

Thus, if P + S > C + E * [1/(1+i)] ^n, you should buy calls because their value must increase for the equation to balance. 

On the other hand if P + S < C + E * [1/(1+i)] ^n, you should buy puts.

For Example -

For the March series, we find Call Option should be purchased for strike prices of Rs. 720 and 740.
