The rates are effective from 15 November, as per the bank's website. Generally, MCLR or marginal cost of funds-based lending rate is the minimum rate at which a bank can offer loans to its customers. The rate revision would make most consumer loans costlier for the customers.  

As per the website, the overnight MCLR rates remain unchanged at 7.60 per cent. The benchmark one-year MCLR has been raised by 10 bps to 8.05 per cent, as against 7.95 per cent earlier.

MCLR for the one-year tenor is used to set the base rate of most consumer loans, such as housing, auto and personal.
