What is the current MCLR rate?

The MCLR rate keeps changing; it depends on the Repo rates fixed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and depends on the fund costs of the bank. Banks cannot give interest rates lower than the MCLR. Banks have to publish MCLR rates for different tenors. The MCLR rates will be different for different banks.
