What is MCLR?
MCLR was introduced by Reserve Bank in 2016. The interest rates of various loans are determined on the basis of MCLR only. This is the lowest rate below which the bank cannot lend to its customer. As this minimum rate increases, the interest rate on the loan increases. Due to this, more EMI will be paid at the increased rate.
Customers who have already taken SBI loans, will have their loan rates reset, followed by more EMIs. If a new customer takes a loan under MCLR, he will get the loan at an increased rate from the start. Thus, due to increase in MCLR, both old and new customers will face expensive loans.
