Earlier in December 2019, the finance minister declared that all types of lending rates would be as high as 9% and deposit rate maximum 6%. The new scheme will come into effect from April 1.

However, only interest rates on credit cards would remain outside the scheme.

The deadline to launch the new lending-deposit ratio scheme was deferred from January 1 to April 1 at the request of bankers and directors.
