"To pass on the benefit of our falling cost of funds to customers, we have reduced MCLR by 10 bps across one-year maturity," a statement from the bank said.

The new one-year MCLR has been cut to 7.90 percent from 8 percent.

The reduction comes as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in a surprise move left the key policy rates unchanged last Thursday at 5.15 percent.

Last month, SBI had reduced its MCLR by 5 basis points across all tenors, effective 10 November, and sharply slashed the deposits pricing between 15 and 75 basis points.

In October also, SBI had announced the reduction in its MCLR rate by 10 basis points across all tenors.
