With effect from 14.09.2016, we have implemented the Central Bank of Kenya guidelines as per circular No.4 of 2016 dated 13.09.2016 and the maximum rate of interest applicable on advances will be four percent over CBR.

Central Bank of Kenya has revised Central Bank Rate (CBR) to 7.00% p.a. with effect from 29th April 2020. Hence, our Rate of Interest on KSH Loans/Advances based on this floating rates will accordingly get revised with effect from 29th April 2020 for existing A/Cs linked to CBR.

The Bank gives hassle free loans for all your requirements at very competitive rates of interest. Loans are instantly given against our Term deposit receipts. We also give loans against deposit with any branch of Bank of India in India or globally subject to regulations of the respective countries.

Pursuant to Government of Kenya Circular No. 15 of 2019 dated 26.11.2019 advising repeal of Interest Rate Cap under section 33B of the Banking Act, Bank of India has introduced the Bank-Base Rate (Risk Based Pricing) for the new loans. The Base Rate presently is 13.00 %.
