After the Reserve Bank of India cut the repo rate by 35 basis points (bps) last week during its monetary policy review, many banks have started lowering lending rates. The most recent one is Central Bank of India. The bank announced on Wednesday that it has reduced its one-year marginal cost-based lending rate (MCLR) by 20 bps from 8.5 percent to 8.3 percent. This will be effective from August 15, 2019. It added that it has reduced rates across all other tenors as well.

Further the bank stated in its press release that it will come out with repo linked retail products. Pallav Mohapatra, MD & CEO said “the bank will come out with new products in the retail segments having repo linked interest rate, i.e., RLIR, during September 2019.”

Here is a look at the bank's MCLR with effect from August 15.
