Only if existing customers approach us and give request for switching from MRR/BPLR/Base rate/MCLR to REPO RATE then only it will be changed.

The Repo Rate would be reset every three months. The impact would be given on loan tenure first, however if maximum tenure has already been availed then the EMI would have to be modified.

I. Impact on Tenor

Suppose, if the maximum permissible tenor for HL is 35 years and existing borrowing of Mr. A has a tenor of 25 years, the bank would elongate the tenor either to maximum permissible year I.e. 35 years in this example or such mutually acceptable term depending on risk profile or any other parameters on case to case basis, so that his existing EMI continues to be the same.

II. Impact on EMI

If at the time of original sanction itself, customer has already availed the borrowing for the maximum tenor permitted by the bank and there is no further room for extension of tenor, in such case EMI would be impacted to the extent of rate change or to give effect to the rate change.

Do I have option to move from REPO RATE to Base Rate/BPLR/MRR/MCLR)?

No, there is no option to move back from REPO RATE to Base rate/BPLR/MRR/MCLR.

If I continue the existing base rate/MCLR. Is there a possibility of Base rate/MCLR change?

Yes, Base rate/MCLR will be reviewed by the Bank from time to time and it may or may not change.
