Regardless of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) keeping its repo rate constant at 6.5 per cent, Bank of Baroda raised its MCLR across four tenors by 5 basis points with effect from today i.e., April 12, 2024.

Meanwhile, the one-month MCLR remains the same at 8.30 percent.

Bank of Baroda offers home loans to non-staff members in the range of 8.40 percent to 10.60 percent for salaried people. The interest rate range is the same for non-salaried borrowers also. In fact, the rate of interest for home improvement loans is also the same.

Marginal Cost of Funds based Lending Rate (MCLR) is the minimum lending rate below which a bank is not permitted to lend. This rate replaced the earlier base rate system in April 2016 to determine the lending rates for commercial banks. 

Additionally, Bank of Baroda also introduced the BOB Earth Green Term Deposit Scheme to garner funds for eco-friendly projects. Both current and new customers can start Green Deposit at any branch of Bank of Baroda.
