Kool Kash bro, just keep in mind you would be paying the short term capital gain tax @15% and few other taxes on the total profit you made on FIFO (First In First Out of your demat account) basis. Supposingly you bought 1000 shares @40 a month back and sold @56 yesterday so you made 16000

It will actually go out of your demat and come back after t 2 so be ready for short term capital gain tax. You can sell now and buy after a week if you think you can get it at 90 or less. Best option.
