Mumbai: Private lender Yes Bank has increased its prime lending rate (PLR) by 50 basis points (bps) to 17 percent effective Friday, a company statement Thursday said.

The Mumbai-based bank has also decided to revise deposit rates for tenure of one year to 18 months by 25 bps to 10 percent and for senior citizens by 75 bps to 10.5 percent per annum, the statement said.

Meanwhile, the bank announced a net profit of 543 million during the first quarter of the current fiscal as against 360 million for the corresponding period previous year, recording a growth of 50.9 percent.
