ICICI Bank cuts lending rate by 0.05%
03 June 2016 Current Affairs: Country's largest private sector lender ICICI Bank has cut its marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) by 0.05 per cent, to take it at par with the rates offered by SBI and HDFC Bank .This will help reduce the rate of interest to new borrowers . 

Under the new rate structure effective today, the bank will give out overnight loans to new borrowers at 8.95 per cent, while the one-year MCLR , to which its housing loans are linked, now comes down to 9.15 per cent. 

Changes have also been effected in the one-month, three-month and six-month MCLR, a table on the bank's website showed. 

RBI introduced the MCLR system from April 1 this year for faster transmission of its policy actions by the lenders. Banks are given the leeway to review their MCLR once a month. 

The overnight MCLRs of banks are lower by over 0.30 per cent from their base rate, from where they have migrated to the new system.
