General Info : Base Lending Rate

What is "Base Lending Rate" or (B.L.R)? For those who have experience with banking institutions especially during application of loan, you might be familiar with B.L.R. Reference to Malaysia Banking Info site, B.L.R is "A minimum interest rate calculated by banking institutions based on a formula which takes into account the institutions' cost of funds and other administrative costs". Each bank might have their own B.L.R based on their cost of funds but normally the number is not that different between each banking institution.
