Ahead of the monetary policy review, state-owned Bank of Baroda (BOB) Tuesday increased its lending rates by up to 0.2 percent, a move that will make the home, auto and other loans expensive.
The bank has revised the marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) with effect from Thursday, BOB said in a statement.
The MCLR for a three-month tenor increased to 8.50 percent from the existing 8.30 percent and for six-month maturity, it will go up to 8.70 percent from the current 8.50 percent.
The interest rate on one-year tenure will go up by 0.1 percent to 8.75 percent.
Most of the retail loans are benchmarked against one-year MCLR.
The RBI is scheduled to unveil its sixth bi-monthly monetary policy on Thursday.
