After the increase in MCLR, the one-year interest rate has gone up to 7.70 percent, which was 7.50 percent earlier. Similarly, the two-year MCLR has become 7.9 per cent and three-year 8 per cent. Currently, most of the bank’s loans are linked to the one-year MCLR rate.



Most banks linking to external benchmarks


Following the instructions of RBI, most banks including SBI have been linking the interest rates of their loans to external benchmark or repo interest rates from October, 2019. This is the reason that the decisions of the Monetary Policy Committee of RBI have a direct impact on the interest rates of loans. The 50 basis points increase in the repo rate in the past is also being directly linked to home loans and auto loans.

What is the interest rate now



After SBI increased by 50 basis points, the interest rate i.e. EBLR for loans linked to external benchmark has increased to 8.05 percent, while the interest rate on loans linked to repo rate RLLR has gone up to 7.65 percent. The bank also charges credit risk premium on top of this. That is, if you are taking a home or auto loan, then the credit risk premium (CRP) will also be added to this interest rate.


How does CRP add up?



All banks including SBI also add CRP to the interest rates of the loan according to the CIBIL score of the customers. If someone’s CIBIL score is above 800, then no CRP will be added to it, but if the CIBIL score is less than that, CRP can be added from 10 basis points to 60 basis points. In this case, your effective interest rate can go up to 8.65 percent.
