Thanks for the update.

Within a short period of time, BNM has cut the OPR again by another 50 basis points to 2.00% and SRR to 1.0%, effective 1 March 2009.

I am still waiting for most of the banks to update their BLR rate before posting the updated information here, and you have done the job.

Thank you.
