State Bank announced a 15 basis points reduction in its lending rates, effective August 10 across all tenors.

Within hours of a steeper 35 basis points reduction in the repo rates by the Reserve Bank to 5.4 per cent in its fourth consecutive step, India’s largest lender State Bank announced a 15 basis points reduction in its lending rates, effective August 10 across all tenors.

 

The new one-year MCLR or the marginal cost based lending rates will come down to 8.25 per cent from 8.40 per cent per annum, the lender said in a statement.

With this reduction, the bank's effective repo-linked lending rate (RLLR) for cash credit accounts (CC)/ overdrafts (OD) customers will be revised downwards to 7.65 per cent, from September 9.

After this cut, home loans of the bank have become cheaper by 35 bps since April.
