Leave a Comment
For the first time in 6 years, India's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) has cut the interest rate on Savings Bank Accounts  to 3.5 per cent from 4 per cent on balance of Rs 1 crore and below. This decission will impact about 90 per cent of SBI's customers. SBI's savings bank account base is of around Rs 9 lakh crore. 

What does this mean ?

This means that those accounts with a balance of Rs 1 crore or less will earn 3.5% per annum from July 31 while those accounts with a balance of above Rs 1 crore will continue to earn 4% per annum.

Main Reasons behind this cut in Interest Rate
