The change will be effective June 15 and will result in higher EMIs for borrowers with loans linked to MCLR.

The State Bank of India (SBI) increased its marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) by 10 basis points (0.1%) across all tenures. The change will be effective June 15 and will result in higher EMIs for borrowers with loans linked to MCLR. MCLR is the minimum interest rates below which banks cannot lend and reflects the trends in banks’ cost of borrowing. It was introduced in 2016.
