No you cannot. The SEBI defines from time to time the list of stocks that can trade options based on a set of fixed criteria. Stocks are selected on the basis of their satisfying various eligibility and selection criteria like volumes, pedigree, depth etc. Here is a list of stocks available on the NSE for options trading, including 9 indices and 204 stocks.
