UBI cuts base rates by 20 bps

United Bank of India on Tuesday cut base rate by 20 basis points to 10.25% from 10.45%. The change will be effective from February 25. The rate cut comes after other public sector lenders, including State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India and Central Bank of India, had initiated base rate cuts. The move is to pass on the benefit of the wider policy rate cut by RBI to the customers. The base rate is the rate of interest below which banks cannot lend to its customers. A cut in the base rate implies that all borrowers, both existing and new, will benefit from lower rates.
