SBI Savings Account To Offer Lower Interest Rate, Short Term Loans Become Cheaper


After the RBI has cut key repo rate by 25 basis points to 5.75%, the interest rate on SBI's large savings deposit account will go down. Also, the interest rate for short term loans including cash credit and overdraft facility will reduce.

For better transmission of key rates into the system, the largest state-run lender SBI from May 1 has migrated to a new interest rate regime. As part of which, SBI has linked its interest rate on savings account with deposits over Rs. 1 lakh and short term loans to repo rate. And with it, whenever there is any change in the key repo rate by the RBI, it automatically gets reflected in the interest rates of these SBI products.
