Recently introduced MCLR is the new benchmark lending rate which has replaced the base rate for new borrowers. It is calculated on the marginal cost of borrowing and return on net worth for banks. The Reserve Bank has inducted the new rate calculation method to ensure fair interest rates to borrowers as well as banks. It is expected to address RBI’s primary objective of expediting monetary policy transmission along with augmenting uniformity and transparency in the calculation methodology of lending rates.
