A 2 per cent TDS will be levied upon total cash withdrawal of more than one crore in a financial year from banks, post-offices or co-operative banks.
Changes in Home and Auto loans
The State Bank of India will link the home and auto loans of its customers with the Repo rate. This will ensure that the customers get instantly benefitted when the RBI reduces the Repo rate.
