In January, Dena Bank had slashed its one-year MCLR by 75 bps. Most major banks had lowered their MCLRs last month in reaction to a demonetisation-induced deluge of deposits and a resultant drop in their marginal cost of funds.

As per the MCLR regime, which replaced the base rate regime in April 2016, banks review their benchmark lending rates every month on the basis of their incremental cost of funds.

SBI, ICICI Bank and PNB have left their MCLRs unchanged for February.
