RBI has cut the repo rate four times this year adding up to a total of 110 bps. Banks have been taking cue and have been reducing interest rates on loan through the year.

The country's largest lender, State Bank of India (SBI) was the first to announce a 15 bps reduction in MCLR across all tenors within hours of RBI's policy announcement on August 7. IDBI Bank and Oriental Bank of Commerce lowered their rates by 5-10 bps while Bank of Baroda had announced a cut in MCLR by 15 bps on August 5. UCO Bank, Allahabad Bank and Canara Bank have also cut their MCLRs. Central Bank of India, too, announced a cut in its lending rates last week.
