SBI New Deposit Rates | SBI Revised Interest Rates April 2020 | SBI New MCLR April 2020 | SBI Cut Interest Rates
State Bank of India has cut its savings bank (SB) deposit rate by 25 basis points (bps) from 3 per cent to 2.75 per cent. Simultaneously, India’s largest bank has also reduced its marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) by 35 bps across all tenors. These rate cuts come as the banking system is awash with liquidity and the appetite for credit is lacklustre.
One basis point is equal to 1/100th of 1% and is used to denote the percentage change in a financial instrument.
