While loan of 3-month tenor will bear the interest rate of 8.10 per cent, down 0.05 per cent from current MCLR. There has been no change for 6-month MCLR which stands at 8.25 per cent.

Banks had adopted MCLR from April 2016 following the directive of Reserve Bank of India. However, a majority of them still follow the base rate or the minimum lending rate formula to charge interest on loans.

MCLR, which is changed every month, is a uniform methodology, which was introduced to ensure fair interest rates to borrowers as well as banks.

The Reserve Bank in its last monetary policy in August had said it would review the MCLR method as banks were not passing on the benefit of repo rate reduction to the consumer.
