To calculate the futures and options turnover, one has to take care of the following:

While calculating the turnover, the total of positive and negative differences are to be considered

In case of reverse trades entered by the trader, the difference thereafter will also be a part of the turnover

In simpler terms, under F&O trading, the turnover of futures will be the absolute profit, which is the sum of positive and negative differences.
Futures Turnover = Absolute Profit (sum of profit and loss made on various transactions throughout the year)
The turnover of options can be calculated by adding the premium obtained on selling the options to the absolute profit.
Options Turnover = Absolute Profit + Premium obtained on selling the options

Both profit and loss in f and o trade should add and consider as turnover eg, profit 2,loss1 then your turnover is 3, actual profit is 2-1 =1

For options turnover:
add absolute profit only ? no need to include loss ?

To calculate turnover, sum up the value of your positive and negative trades. Say if you have a positive F&Otrade of Rs 40,000 and negative trade of Rs 36,000, your income is Rs 4,000 but your turnover shall be Rs 76,000

The turnover of options can be calculated by adding the premium obtained on selling the options to the absolute profit.
