Axis Bank hikes MCLR rates by 10 bps with effect from 18 Nov. Details Here


One of the leading private banker, Axis Bank has hiked the marginal cost of fund-based lending rate (MCLR) by 10 basis points on various tenures with effect from November 18. The new benchmark lending rates range from as low as 8.25% to a maximum of 8.60%. That being said, equated monthly installments (EMIs) will go up.

As per the latest release, at Axis Bank, now 1-year MCLR is around 8.45% effective from November 18 compared to the previous rate of 8.35%. 2-years MCLR is now set at 8.55% from the previous 8.45%, while this benchmark rate is at 8.60% on a 3-years tenure compared to the previous 8.50%.

Furthermore, MCLR for 6-months and 3-months tenure has been raised to 8.40% and 8.35% compared to the previous 8.30% and 8.25% respectively. MCLR for 1-month and overnight tenures is increased to 8.25% each against the earlier 8.15%.

Axis Bank said that “these rates will be valid till the next review.”

Also, the base rate has been kept unchanged at 9.15% since September 17, 2022.

It needs to be noted that base rate and MCLR are reviewed by the bank from time to time and it may or may not change.

However, not all borrowers will face the MCLR hike on their loan repayment, as Axis Bank has adopted the repo rate as the external Benchmark lending rate with effect from October 01, 2019, as part of RBI’s circular. Simply put, all new floating rate loans and credit limits renewed with effect from October 01, 2019, will be linked to the repo rate.
