The impact of the country's current economic downturn. The largest bank, State Bank of India (SBI), on Monday announced its marginal cost-based lending rate, or MCLR, to reduce it by 5 basis points. It has also decided to reduce the interest rate on all term deposits (SBI FD Interest Rates) by up to 20 basis points. State Bank of India has announced a reduction in MCLR for the fifth time this year.

The decision to reduce interest rates (SBI Interest Rates) was made only after the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) repo rate cut was announced by 1.5 percentage points. Depending on this key interest rate, commercial banks are lending to short-term funds. The SBI has said that the MCLR will be 9.5 percent from September 7 onwards.


According to a statement issued by the bank, SBI has decided to reduce the interest rate applicable to return term deposits by 25-24 bps and in bulk term deposits by 8-20 bps.

The SBI said the move was only to re-recognize interest rates on deposits "in the context of declining interest rates."

The government and RBI have emphasized that the country's economy is moving forward after economic growth has dropped below six years. The central bank has repeatedly emphasized the need for commercial banks to take steps to reduce consumer interest rates.



Just last week, the Reserve Bank of India directed all banks in the country to link fixed loans with external benchmark interest rates based on October 7. The top bank has stated that the banks have not done satisfactorily in reducing the recent policy rate of customers.


Bankers and analysts say that RBI's move to connect all lenders' retail loans to external standards reduces the possibility of lowering interest rates for consumers at any time.
