    State Bank of India was first to announce 10 bps cut in MCLR last week after Reserve Bank of India Governor Shaktikanta Das exuded confidence that previous policy rate cuts would translate into banks lowering lending rates even as the central bank kept repo rate unchanged in the last monetary policy.

    After the cut, Union Bank of India's one year MCLR now stands at 8.2 percent, down from 8.25 percent. According to a press release issued by the bank, the new rates will be effective from 11 December, 2019.

    The rate reduction comes even as the RBI left key policy rates unchanged at the last meeting on December 5. The city-based lender has reduced its one-year MCLR rates, which all retail loans are linked to, only marginally by 5 bps to 8.25 percent.

    This makes the SBI rates the cheapest and this is the eighth consecutive lending rate reduction by the largest lender since the beginning of the fiscal.

    Private sector lender, HDFC Bank has cut MCLR rates by between 5 bps and 10 bps for these tenors: 6-month, 1-year, 2-year and 3-year. These rates will be effective from today, i.e., November 7. In August, the bank had cut MCLR across all tenors.
