Hike in repo rates

The repo-linked lending rate (RLLR) for existing clients was raised from 6.5 percent to 6.9 percent on June 1 by the state-owned Punjab National Bank (PNB). According to the PNB website, “As on date, Repo Linked Lending Rate (RLLR): 6.90% w.e.f. 01.06.2022 for existing customers. However, for new customers it will be effective from 07.05.2022.”

Other banks, too, have increased repo rate linked loan rates.

ICICI Bank and Bank of Baroda have already increased the interest rates of repo rate linked home loans post the RBI announcement.

Note that existing borrowers’ interest rates, which are tied to the repo rate or any other interest rate benchmark, both internal and external, will remain unchanged until their loans’ next reset date. The new interest rate on their reset date will be computed using the benchmark rate and credit spreads in effect on that date.
