MCLR rate is the minimum rate at which banks can offer their loan products to customers. Thus, when the MCLR rate increases, the floating rate as well as all loans benchmarked to the MCLR rate increases. So, new borrowers would now have to pay more interest to borrow funds, and existing borrowers will have to pay more on their equated monthly instalments (EMIs) on loan once their loan date reset arrives.

Here is A Comparison of the Rate of Interest Across Different Banks:
