The new rate will come into effect from April 15, 2020. 
In view of adequate liquidity in the system, SBI realigned its interest rates on savings bank deposits with effect from April 15, 2020, SBI said in a statement. 
The savings rate has been reduced to 2.75 per cent from 3 per cent, it said. 
The bank has also reduced the marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) by 35 bps across all tenures. 
The one-year MCLR comes down to 7.40 per cent per annum from 7.75 per cent per with effect from April 10, 2020, it said in the statement. 
It is the 11th consecutive cut in MCLR in 2019-20, the bank said. 
The one-year tenure is the benchmark against which most of the consumer loans are priced.
"Consequently, EMIs on eligible home loan accounts (linked to MCLR) will get cheaper by around Rs 24.00 per 1 lakh on a 30 year loan," SBI said.
