SBI said it continues to remain the “cheapest loan provider in the country” and the latest rate cut is meant to “pass on the benefit of its reducing cost of funds to the customers.”
MCLR rates are based on the bank’s own cost of funds. If your home loan is linked to SBI’s MCLR rate, the latest cut may not bring down your EMIs immediately. MCLR-based loans typically have a one-year reset clause.
For new borrowers, SBI also offers a repo-rate linked home loan scheme. Under this scheme, the loan rate gets adjusted as and when Reserve Bank revises its benchmark repo rate.
