The benchmark one-year tenor MCLR will now be 8.25 percent as compared to the existing 8.30 percent.

Most of the consumer loans, such as retail, automobile and personal, are based on one-year MCLR.

Likewise, the overnight, three and six-month tenor MCLRs have been cut by 5 bps each in the range of 7.75-8.10 percent. There has been no change in one-month MCLR of 7.85 percent.

The revised rates will be effective from Friday, Allahabad Bank said.

Several other banks, including State Bank of India (SBI), have revised their MCLR following Reserve Bank of India (RBI)'s policy rate announcement on 6 February.

Even though the regulator kept the repo rate unchange at 5.15 percent, banks were given other relief in the form of cash reserve ratio (CRR) relaxation for loans to MSMEs.
