At 12:35 pm, the shares of Canara Bank are trading at Rs 203.55 with 5.58 per cent gain for the day. The rally in Canara Bank is on account of news regarding the company increasing marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) and repo-linked lending rate (RLLR) on its variety of products across all offered tenures. The bank has hiked MCLR by 10 basis points for all tenures. Canara Bank will have overnight MCLR revised at 6.75 per cent from the previous 6.65 per cent.
The MCLR is the minimum interest rate below which the banks cannot lend, except in limited circumstances. An increase in MCLR will increase interest rates on newly sanctioned loans and advances with initial disbursements made on or after July 7, 2022.
