NEW DELHI : State-owned Punjab National Bank (PNB) on Wednesday said it will reduce the MCLR by 0.10 percentage point for various tenor loans from 1 March.

There is a reduction in the marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) with effect from 1 March, 2019, PNB said in a regulatory filing.

The three-year MCLR has been cut to 8.65%.

The rates for overnight, one/three/six month MCLRs are also down by 10 basis points each at 8.05%, 8.10% and 8.15% respectively.

Base rate at 9.25% will remain unchanged, bank said.

The Reserve Bank in its last bi-monthly policy review for 2018-19 had cut the key repo rate by 25 basis points to 6.25%, paving the way for banks to make consumer loans cheaper.
