One year MCLR has been reduced to 8.80 per cent from 9.15 per cent. "The reduction in MCLR is expected to positively impact loan growth; both in the retail consumer segment and corporate sector lending, thereby supporting the growth impulses in the economy," the bank said.
This is the second reduction by the bank in the last two months. Banks, in January, have reduced their minimum lending rates or MCLR after the surge in deposits post the government's decision to demonetize old high-value currency notes.
