PTI announced on Tuesday that the State Bank of India hiked its marginal cost of funds-based lending rate, or MCLR, on all forms of loans by 0.1 per cent.

Bank of Baroda, Axis Bank, and Kotak Mahindra Bank all raised their benchmark lending rates in response to the action by the State Bank of India. Other commercial banks often follow the State Bank of India when it comes to lending rates.

Borrowers’ easy monthly instalments, or EMIs, would rise due to the new policy.

The lowest lending rate (MCLR) is the lowest rate a bank can lend. It is determined by how long a borrower has to pay back.
