Marginal cost of funds-based lending rates (MCLR)

MCLR is the minimum interest rate that banks are required to charge for a specific loan. MCLR works as a benchmark or lower limit of lending rates.  From October 1, 2019, all banks, including SBI, have to lend only at an interest rate linked to an external benchmark such as RBI's repo rate or Treasury Bill yield.

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has decided to keep the policy repo rate unchanged at 6.50 per cent for the fourth time in a row, Reserve Bank of India Governor Shaktikanta Das said on Friday (October 6) after the MPC meeting.

Senior citizens will earn an interest rate of 3.5% to 7.75% on these deposits. These rates are effective from 1 October 2023.
