The existing rate for new customers is 9.9 per cent, whereas for women, it's 9.85 per cent.

Canara Bank and Standard Chartered also lowered benchmark lending rates by 0.25 per cent.

In a filing to BSE, Canara Bank said: "The Board of the bank has approved reduction in the base rate by 25 bps from 9.90 per cent to 9.65 per cent for loans/advances, effective October 7, 2015."

Corporation Bank said it has revised the base rate for lending to 9.7 per cent from 9.9 per cent from October 8.

Infrastructure financier IIFCL also announced a downward revision in its benchmark rate by 0.20 per cent. With this, IIFCL's benchmark rate has been revised to 9.7 per cent from 9.9 per cent earlier. This change in benchmark rate will be effective today.
