If a loan is partly disbursed and earlier rate is linked to I-Base, which benchmark (I-Base OR MCLR) would be applicable for subsequent disbursements?

Link

All existing loans linked to the I-Base Rate will continue till its repayment. All existing borrowers will, however, have the option to shift to the MCLR linked loan at mutually acceptable terms

 

Thus, in case of partly disbursed loan, for subsequent disbursements, the I-Base benchmark rate will continue to be applicable, provided the borrower does not exercise the option to move to the MCLR linked loan at mutually acceptable terms

What does periodicity of reset means?

Link

In case of floating rate loans, the Banks can specify dates of interest reset which will be linked to either the date of first disbursement or date of review of MCRL.

The periodicity of reset will be one year or lower. The exact periodicity of reset will form part of the terms of the loan contract.

For loans disbursed in a particular month, the reset date will be the 1st day of the month of the subsequent year(s). e.g. if the loan is disbursed during any day of April 2016, the reset date for the said loan will be April 1, 2017

If, however, the customer opts for any rate conversion in a particular month, then the annual reset date will be 1st day of the month (in which the conversion is effected) of the subsequent year(s). e.g. if the loan is disbursed on April 20, 2016 and subsequently in the month of September 2016, the customer opts rate conversion which is effected on September 12, 2016, the reset date for the said loan will be September 1, 2017

What are the various types of benchmark under MCLR?

Link

Currently, the Bank has published the following MCLR:

  • Overnight MCLR
  • One-month MCLR
  • Three-month MCLR
  • Six month MCLR
  • One year MCLR

Will ICICI Bank discontinue the current benchmark rates I-Base/FRR/PLR?

Link

For all new loans sanctioned from April 1, 2016, the Bank has discontinued offering loans linked with I-Base. However, the existing loans will continue on the respective I-Base/FRR/PLR till its repayment, provided the borrower does not exercise the option to move to the MCLR linked loan at mutually acceptable terms.

Will the existing customers linked to FRR//PLR/I-Base based benchmark rate be allowed to migrate to I-MCLR-1Y based pricing without change in effective rate of interest?

Link

All existing customers has an option to switch from the existing system of FRR/PLR/I-Base (FRR/PLR/I-Base +/- spread) to the new system of I-MCLR-1Y (I-MCLR-1Y + spread) without changing the effective rate of interest. No switch fee would be charged for this option. The effect of conversion in the system, from existing system of FRR/PLR/I-Base to new system of I-MCLR-1Y, will be provided on an immediate basis.

 

Illustration: If an existing customer with loan amount of ₹ 2.5 million is at 9.55% p.a. effective ROI (I-Base + 0.20%) and if the customer opts to switch-over to I-MCLR-1Y then the Adjustable Rate Home Loan (ARHL) interest rate will become (I-MCLR-1Y (9.15%) + spread (0.40%)) equivalent to 9.55% p.a..

 

Thus, the effective rate will continue to remain same at 9.55% p.a. with spread applicable on the loan being adjusted.

Will MCLR be different between Banks?

Link

Yes, MCLR can be different between different banks as it will depend on marginal cost of funds, negative carry on account of CRR, operating costs, tenor premium of respective banks.

When will be the reset date decided for the loan? How will the reset impact the current rate of interest (ROI) in case the MCLR increases or decreases?

Link

The reset period and date will be decided on the date of first disbursement.

 

In case of increase in MCLR on the reset date, the ROI will increase which in turn will impact the EMI/tenor of the loan depending on the option exercised by the borrower.

 

In case of decrease in MCLR on the reset date, the ROI will decrease which in turn will impact the EMI/tenor of the loan depending on the option exercised by the borrower.

 

Illustration: Consider a scenario where first disbursement of the loan is done on April 15, 2016 under I-MCRL-1Y benchmark rate, with the I-MCRL-1Y being 9.20% p.a. with a spread/margin of 20 basis points (bps). In such a case the effective rate would be 9.40% p.a.

In the above scenario, the effective rate of 9.40% p.a. would remain constant till the next reset date i.e April 1, 2017. On April 1, 2017, the loans would be reset with the applicable I-MCLR-1Y rate as on that date.

 

It may be mentioned that the spread/margin of the loan would continue to remain the same. e.g. If the I-MCLR-1Y is 9.10% p.a. as on April 1st 2017, then revised rate applicable for the loan would be 9.10% + 0.20% = 9.30% p.a. w.e.f. April 1, 2017.
