The reduction in MCLR by the bank comes a day after the Reserve Bank of India left the repo rate unchanged at 5.15 percent but announced long-term repo operation for up to Rs 1 lakh crore, making cost of funds cheaper for banks.

While the one-month MCLR has been reduced by 5 basis points to 7.55 percent, overnight, three- and six-month rates were down by 10 basis points, it said.

Last week, market leader State Bank of India (SBI) announced 5 basis points (bps) reduction in its MCLR across tenors, effective February 10.

This was the ninth consecutive cut in MCLR by the bank in the current financial year.
