State-owned Punjab National Bank (PNB) on Wednesday raised its marginal cost of funds-based lending rate by 15 basis points or 0.15 percent across all tenures, a move that will lead to an increase in EMIs for borrowers.
The new rates are effective from June 1, PNB said in a regulatory filing.
The revision follows an off-cycle rate increase by the Reserve Bank in May. The central bank hiked the repo rate — at which it lends short-term money to banks — by 0.40 percent to 4.40 percent.
With the revision, one-year MCLR has increased to 7.40 percent from 7.25 percent earlier.
Most of the loans are linked to the one-year MCLR rate.
The overnight, one-month, and three-month MCLR rose by 15 basis points to 6.75 percent, 6.80 percent, and 6.90 percent, respectively, whereas the six-month MCLR increased to 7.10 percent.
At the same time, three-year MCLR increased by 0.15 percent to 7.70 percent.
With the increase, EMIs will go up for those borrowers who have availed of loans on MCLR (Marginal Cost of Funds based Lending Rate).
