SBI cuts minimum lending rate for 6th time in one year

October 09, 2019 11:07 IST

The State Bank of India on Wednesday announced a reduction in its marginal cost of fund based lending (MCLR) rate by 10 basis points across all tenures, effective October 10. 

This is the sixth time that the country's largest lender has cut its MCLR or minimum lending rate in the current financial year. The rate reduction is not applicable to the repo-linked loans. 

 

"In view of the festival season and extending the benefits to customers across all segments, we have reduced our MCLR  by 10 bps across all tenures," the bank said in a statement. 

With this reduction, the one-year MCLR, to which all the lending rates are linked to, is set at 8.05 per cent as against 8.15 per cent earlier. 

The cut in MCLR follows a 25 bps  reduction in repo rate by the RBI last week.
