SBI Cuts Rates on Bulk Deposits
PM Modi’s fight against black money has intensifies, with banks receiving large deposits over the last month or so.
Taking this as a cue, State Bank of India, India’s largest public sector bank, has decided to slash interest rates on bulk deposits.
The interest rates have been cut by about 125 to 190 basis points and has supposedly been arrived upon due to the easy availability of funds.
While all Indian banks have received over Rs.5.4 lakh crores from November 9-18, SBI alone has received up to Rs. 1.5 lakh crores, as suggested by RBI.
SBI came to this decision after several other banks also decided to lower the rates as money felt flowing in at an incredible rate over the last month or so.

State Bank of India Slashes FD Rates to 7.05%, 6 Year Low
In a huge setback for customers, State Bank of India has reduced the interest rate on its one-year Fixed Deposits to a six year low of 7.05%. This was done after the most recent round of cuts put forth by the largest bank in India and saw rates on two-year and three-year deposits being increased to 7% and 6.5%, respectively. The last time such as incident occurred was between October 1 and December 7 in the year 2010 when the rate of interest was down to 7%.
SBI’s peer in Delhi, the Punjab National Bank has reduced the rate of interest on one-year deposits by 5bps or basis points to 7.2% and those on 2-year and 3-year deposits by 10bps or base points each to 7.05%. Bank of Baroda has maintained the rate of interest on Fixed Deposits of one and two years, but has decreased the interest rate on 3-year deposits by 5 base points to 7.25%. Important lenders from the private sector such as HDFC Bank, Axis Bank and ICICI Bank have held rates on their one-year, two-years and three-years deposit at 7.25%.
Reducing the rates on fixed deposits are necessary for banks to maintain their margins while transmitting the Reserve Bank of India’s rate cuts, which has amounted to 175 base points since the January of 2015 to borrowers. Borrowers are likely to get better deals but fixed deposits are also becoming increasingly unappealing for savers.

State Bank of India Considers 25 Basis Point Interest Rate Cut
A 25-basis points cut in interest rates is to be expected soon, according to State Bank of India Chairperson Arundhati Bhattacharya, who also commented on the relationship between the financial health of the banking sector and all-round performance of the economy. Talking to IANS, she claimed that the government’s target of 4% inflation is lower than ideal, in a country where food inflation has consistently remained above 6% in the last six decades, and 40-50% of components in Consumer Price Index were volatile food items. However, she predicted a fall in the current inflation owing to a statistical strategy involving price indices, that opens up the door for interest-rate cuts by commercial banks – something the central bank has wanted since it had itself cut rates. The Central Bank’s newly introduced set of norms for the sale of stressed items by commercial banks is largely meant to help the latter balance their balance sheets and ensure total transparency. She admitted that legacy issues in bad loans would take a long time to be addressed – though it would be no more than five years, by which time the economic activity would have picked up.
