<p>The action will increase the cost of EMIs connected to MCLR.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The rate most consumer loans are anchored to is the one-year MCLR.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In contrast to the current rate of 8.65 percent, the amended one-year MCLR would be 8.70 percent, according to a regulatory filing by BoB.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It said that the new tariff will go into effect on August 12.</p>

<p> </p>
<p>Bank of Maharashtra (BoM), another lender in the public sector, has raised its MCLR by 10 basis points.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>According to a filing by BoM, the rate of the one-year MCLR increased from 8.50% to 8.60% as a result of the increase.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It said that the new rate will take effect on August 10, 2023.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Reserve Bank of India Governor, Shaktikanta Das, announced the decision of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to maintain the policy repo rate at 6.50 percent with the ability to intervene should the need arise.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Furthermore, he said, “with monetary transmission currently in place and headline inflation still above the 4% objective, the MPC chose to stay focused on removal of accommodation to ensure that inflation gradually aligns with the target, while sustaining growth.</p>
