State Bank of India on Wednesday said it would cut its marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) by 15 basis points across all tenors with effect from August 10. This comes on the heels of the RBI cutting its policy repo rate by 35 bps from 5.75 per cent to 5.40 per cent. The bank said its one-year MCLR will decline to 8.25 per cent from 8.40 per cent. All rupee loans sanctioned and credit limits renewed by banks with effect from April 1, 2016 are priced with reference to MCLR.
