SBI slashes MCLR by 5 bps across tenors

SBI bank

New Delhi, Feb 7 (IANS) In its ninth consecutive cut in MCLR by a bank in the current fiscal, India’s top lender State Bank of India (SBI) on Friday aannounced a cut in the retail fixed deposits or FD rates effective from February 10.

The reduction in MCLR by the bank comes a day after the RBI left the repo rates unchanged at 5.15 per cent, but its long-term repo operation for up to Rs 1 lakh crore made the cost of funds cheaper for banks.

Marginal Cost of Funds-based Lending Rate (MCLR) is the minimum lending rate below which a bank is not permitted to lend.

“In view of the surplus liquidity in the system, the SBI realigns its interest rate on Retail Term Deposits (less than Rs 2 crore) and Bulk Term Deposits (Rs 2 crore & above) from February 10, 2020. The bank slashed the Term Deposits rates by 10-50 bps in the Retail segment and 25-50 bps in the Bulk segment,” a SBI statement said.

The bank has cut the FD rates across all tenors, except for those with maturity period between 7 to 45 days.

For FDs maturing within 46 to 179 days, the SBI has cut the interest rate sharply by 50 basis points (bps). Now, these deposits will fetch an interest rate of 5 per cent.

For FDs maturing within 180 to 210 days and 211 days to less than 1 year, the SBI will give an interest rate of 5.50 per cent.

Earlier, the SBI was offering 5.80 per cent on these deposits.

The bank has slashed the interest rate by 10 bps on deposits maturing in one year to 10 years. These deposits, which earlier fetched 6.10 per cent interest, will now be offered at 6 per cent interest.

After the latest rate cut by the SBI for senior citizens, deposits maturing in 46 to 179 days will fetch 5.50 per cent returns.

For FDs maturing in 180 to 210 days as well as 211 days to less than one year, the SBI will offer an interest rate of 6 per cent. After the latest revision, the SBI will give 6.50 per cent interest to senior citizens for maturity periods between one year and 10 years.

The key Indian equity indices traded on a negative note on Friday with the BSE Sensex falling over 100 points.

Around 10.10 p.m., Sensex was trading at 49,518.63, lower by 106.13 points or 0.21 per cent from its previous close of 49,624.76.

It opened at 49,594.95 and has so far touched an intra-day high of 49,663.74 and a low of 49,361.22 points.

The Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange was trading at 14,574.60, lower by 15.75 points or 0.11 per cent from its previous close.

Manish Hathiramani, technical analyst with Deen Dayal Investments said: “The Nifty has become slightly nervous after facing resistance at 14,750. While the trend still remains positive, we need to approach the index strategically.”

“On the upside we can go up to 14,800-14,900. On the downside, we have a good support at 14,300. Hence traders can initiate long positions with a target of 14,800 and a stop below 14,300,” he said.

Sensex over 50K mark as Biden, Budget fuel fast recovery hopes

Positive global cues and expectations of healthy quarterly results, along with that of a supportive Union Budget FY22, powered the ascent of India’s barometer index — the S&P BSE Sensex — to cross the 50,000 mark on Thursday.

However, the barometer index dipped below the psychologically important mark due to profit booking at the end of the day’s trade.

The Sensex closed at 49,624.76, lower by 167.36 points, or 0.34 per cent, from its previous close of 49,792.12.

It opened at 50,162.05 and touched a fresh all-time high of 50,184.01 points.

The Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) also touched a new record high of 14,753.55 points. It ended the day’s trade at 14,590.35, lower by 54.35 points, or 0.37 per cent, from its previous close.

Earlier in the day, Sensex crossed the 50,000-mark.

Coming a day after Joe Biden’s inauguration as US President, the BSE Sensex mirrored its Asian counterparts in having a gap-up opening.

In fact, the positivity sentiment led it to open above the 50,000-mark. The gains of the last 5,000 points in Sensex has come in just 32 trading sessions.

Moreover, expectations of an even faster economic recovery on the back of the vaccination programme have been cited as other factors for the up-move.

Besides, easy liquidity conditions across the global have been funnelling into India’s market, as FIIs shore up their stakes and pump-up this rally.
