 From October 1, SBI also reduced its base rate to 8.95 percent p.a. (from 9 percent) while its MCLR or marginal cost based lending rate continued to be at 8 percent on one-year tenure loans.

Currently, SBI and most other banks including HDFC and ICICI Bank are offering home loans starting from 8.35 percent for women borrowers and 8.40 percent for the rest.

This comes as a precursor to the key interest rate decision on Wednesday and the Reserve Bank of India is widely expected to keep the repo rate unchanged at 6 percent.

 SBI’s decision to reduce rates also comes just in three months as the rates were previously revised in July.
