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.
