Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

State-run (IOB) Friday raised its benchmark lending rate by 5 basis points, a move that will make all its costlier.

The has decided to increase the marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) by 0.05 per cent across tenors, effective November 10, said in a statement.

MCLR for a one-year tenor will rise to 8.75 per cent from 8.7 per cent. Most of its retail are benchmarked against one-year MCLR.

The rate for a two-year tenor has been fixed at 8.85 per cent as against the existing 8.8 per cent, while it is 8.95 per cent for a three-year period.

The MCLR mechanism was introduced in the system in April 2016 as an alternative to base rate, below which banks cannot lend, for new borrowers.

The MCLR is calculated on the marginal cost of borrowing and return on net worth for banks.
