    How to Switch from ICICI Bank’s Base Rate to MCLR?

    The first thing to keep in mind before switching from base rate to MCLR for ICICI Home Loan is the cost of transfer. Banks usually charge a borrower for switching from base rate to MCLR. This fee can range from anywhere between Rs.5,000 and Rs.20,000, depending on the bank. If you only have a few more months of EMI to be paid, consider this before planning to switch to MCLR.

    The most important aspect to keep in mind before making a switch is the current outstanding balance, EMI and the interest cost on transfer of loan to MCLR. Consider the outstanding amount and calculate the interest payable on that amount in base rate and MCLR to work out which will be the more economical alternative.

    If you still manage to save a considerable amount of money after bearing in mind the fees and the new interest rate, it would be a wise decision to switch over to the MCLR system.
