What is MCLR?
When you take a loan from a bank, the minimum rate of interest charged by the bank is called the base rate. The bank cannot give loan to anyone at a rate lower than the base rate. In place of this base rate, now banks are using MCLR. It is calculated on the basis of marginal cost of funds, term premium, operating expenses and cost of maintaining cash reserves ratio.
