This new system will be implemented from starting of the financial year, i.e., from 1st April 2017. The fine chargers will be mentioned based on the difference between required minimum balance and the shortfall of respective SBI accounts.

Similarly, in the urban areas, the customers need to maintain the average monthly balance should be Rs. 3,000. While in semi-urban areas, people have to maintain a minimum balance of Rs. 2000 and in rural areas, the monthly average of Rs. 1000.

A senior SBI executive said the bank had, at present, 250 million savings accounts. “Since Prime Minister announced demonetisation of old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on November 8 last year, the bank had initiated a large number of savings accounts especially till end-December.”

For metropolitan areas, if the average monthly balance is above 75 percent the fine charges mentioned is Rs. 100 along with service tax. While in urban areas if the shortfall of MAB is less than 50 percent the amount to pay is Rs. 50 percent and service tax. Similarly, if the shortfall is between 50 and 75 percent then have to pay Rs. 60 along with service tax and if it is between 75 percent have to pay the charge of Rs. 80 and service charge.

The executive also added, “Managing these SBI accounts, including those with zero balance, includes expenses such as running operations and systems. It is also an effort to stem an outflow of money from savings accounts, mainly those opened recently.”

SBI has implemented this minimum balance payment system for the savings account in the year 2012 in July in a bid to lure customers. As per the reports, the bank is going to merge five associate banks of itself and thus acquires 50 crore customers. The bank also reduced the interest rates on term deposits from 180 days to one year and 456 days to three years from 1st March 2017.

Home Loan Rates becomes Cheapest in Six years after SBI and Other Banks Cut down Rates

home loan rates sbi

The Home Loan Interest Rates were cut down by the India’s largest bank ‘State Bank of India’ from 9.10% to 8.6% and this result the home loan rates have fallen to their lowest level in six years. While the State Bank of India (SBI) cut its one-year marginal cost of lending rate (MCLR), the target to which home loans are linked to 8% rather than 8.9% earlier, it kept the spread above MCLR at 60 basis points, against 20 basis points earlier.

Meanwhile, home loans up to Rs 75 lakh, earlier available at 9.1% is now taking at 8.6%. For other people, it would be 8.65%, against 9.15% earlier. Apart from SBI, Punjab National Bank and the Union Bank of India also cut down the home loan rates. Private sector leading bank ICICI is also looking to follow the same strategy.

Earlier reports said that the SBI and other banks were cut down the rates following Prime Minister Modi’s push to hint that benefits of demonetization in the form of record deposits are being shared with the poor and middle class.

However, the drop in lending rates announced by several public sector banks will mark the affordable home loan scheme, announced by PM Modi on Jan 1st, available at a little over 4% for debtors looking for loans up to Rs 9 lakh. The details of the scheme are not yet to be announced. The decrease in MCLR will allow new borrowers to get loans at the cheaper rates.

Old loans will get the benefit of the new rates only after their one-year lock-in ends. People those who had got loans before April 2016 would have their EMIs linked to the earlier benchmark. The SBI has also restored a teaser rate loan, where loans will be available at 8.5% for the first two years at a floating rate in following years.

Other banks which have announced lower rates with the result from the New Year include Sate Bank of Travancore, IDBI Bank, and Indian Overseas Bank. SBI bank officials said that home loans would provide the bank with an alternative to space funds in government bonds where the return is less than 7%.

Meanwhile, the banks imagine the interest subsidy on loans for affordable homes and small scale businesses to counter the stoppage caused by economic tightening following demonetisation.
