"The bank is introducing two tier saving bank rate with effect from today," Bank of India said in a regulatory filing on Thursday.

BOI said customers maintaining savings bank balance up to Rs 50 lakh will get 3.5 percent while those maintaining above Rs 50 lakh will continue to earn an interest of 4 percent per annum.
