The country’s biggest lender has slashed retail deposits rates by 10 to 50 basis points across maturities and bulk deposits by 30 to 70 basis-points across tenors. The modified rates will come into effect from Monday, 26th August 2019. State Bank of India mentioned falling interest rate scenario & surplus liquidity for the latest rate cut on FDs. It had earlier revised fixed deposit rates from 1st August 2019.

Earlier this month, the Reserve Bank of India too had cut its repo rate by 35 basis points, its 4th cut this year. The RBI chief told all the banks to pass on the central bank's rate cuts to borrowers.

Meanwhile, the SBI has decided not to lower the savings bank interest rate further and hold the same at the existing level of 3.00 percent for its customers with balances above Rs. 1 lakh. SBI Customers with savings account balance up to Rs. 1 lakh will continue to receive rate of interest at 3.50 percent.

Also it must be noted that from May 2019 onwards, SBI had linked the interest rate on savings bank deposits (for balances more than Rs. 1 lakh) with RBI's repo rate without modifying the rate of 3.50 percent for account balances up to Rs. 1 lakh.
