With effect from 1 November 2019, the interest on savings accounts with SBI having balances less than Rs 1 lakh will be reduced from the existing 3.5 percent to 3.25 percent. Interest on savings account deposits with balances of over Rs 1 lakh was linked to repo rate by SBI. Currently, it stands at 3 percent.
