New Delhi: Signalling tightening of rates, HDFC Bank on Tuesday raised interest rates on deposits by up to 0.5 per cent for various tenors, while Bank of Baroda hiked lending rates by 0.1 per cent.
In a statement, HDFC Bank said the new rate interest rate on deposits below Rs 1 crore for various tenors will come into effect from Tuesday. The rate on deposits with tenor of 5-8 years and 8-10 years has been increased to 6.5 per cent from 6 per cent.
The rate has been hiked to 7.25 per cent for fixed deposits of 3-5 years from the earlier 7.1 per cent.

The interest rate for different categories of borrowers are pegged at the marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR). "MCLR has been reviewed at 10 BPS above existing level w.e.f.
