Let us tell you that the base rate is the minimum interest rate, below which no bank can give a loan. This rate is fixed by the Reserve Bank of India. The current base rate fixed by the Reserve Bank is 7.30-8.80 percent.

Please note that all home loans taken after July 2010 are linked to the base rate. Banks themselves decide whether to calculate the cost of funds according to the average fund cost or according to the MCLR. The current MCLR rate fixed by the Reserve Bank is 6.55-7.00 percent.
