SBI hikes home loans interest across lending benchmarks; EMIs to increase

[ecis2016.org] The move by SBI comes days after the RBI announced a 50-basis-point hike in the repo rate.

State Bank of India, the country’s largest public lender, has announced an increase across its various lending benchmarks, including the repo linked loan rate (RLLR), the external benchmark-based lending rate (EBLR) and the marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR), in the range of 20 to 50 basis points.

The move by SBI, which comes days after the RBI announced a 50-basis-point hike in the repo rate, would not only increase the EMI burden for existing customers but also increase the cost of borrowing for new home loan applicants.

Since may, the RBI has increased the repo rate, at which it lends funds to scheduled banks in India, by a cumulative 140 basis points.  One basis point equals to one-hundredth part of a percentage point.

SBI repo-rate linked new rates

With the 50-basis-point hike in rates by the public lender that comes into effect from august 15, 20222, SBI repo rate linked home loan is now priced at 7.65% as against the earlier 7.15%.

However, borrowers have to shell out more than the basic interest rate since SBI charges a credit risk premium (CRP) over and above the RLLR.

After the 50-basis-point hike on August 15, 2022, SBI’s EBLR now stands at 8.05% as against 7.55 earlier.   However, borrowers have to shell out more than the basic interest rate since SBI charges a CRP over and above the EBR.
