Listen to this article

Axis Bank has hiked its Marginal Cost of Funds based Lending Rate (MCLR) by 5 basis points (bps) with effect from 18 April. The benchmark one-year tenor MLCR will rise to 7.35 per cent. The overnight, one-month, three-month and six-month MCLRs have been hiked by 0.05 per cent each to 7.20%, 7.30% and 7.35% respectively.

The benchmark one-year tenor MCLR will make consumer loans such as personal, auto and home loans pricey among others.

SBI increased its MCLR by 10 basis points, with effect from April 15, across all tenors.

Last week, Bank of Baroda, a public-sector lender, increased its MCLR by 5 basis points, with effect from April 12.

Notably, the Reserve Bank in its monetary policy last week kept the repo rate unchanged at 4 per cent. However, it is said to prioritise inflation overgrowth going ahead, as the geopolitical tensions have fuelled price rise across the globe.
