What is MCLR?
The basic minimum rate at which banks can provide consumers loans is known as the MCLR, or marginal cost of funds-based lending rate. For the purpose of determining the interest rates of various types of loans, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) established MCLR in 2016. It serves as an internal benchmark rate for banks to use when providing loans at a fair and open interest rate. Up until September 30, 2019, banks continued to make house loans connected to the MCLR.
Banks including HDFC Bank, Bank of Baroda, Union Bank of India, ICICI Bank, and PNB have increased their marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) in January 2023.
Many banks have increased their marginal cost of lending rate (MCLR), which has an effect on their customers’ Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs). This is because a large number of bank loan customers are still linked to the MCLR, while new loan borrowers are transferred to the external benchmark lending rate (EBLR).
