#### Equated Monthly Installment(EMI)

Equated Monthly Installment – EMI for short – is the amount payable every month to the bank or any other financial institution until the loan amount is fully paid off. It consists of the interest on loan as well as part of the principal amount to be repaid. The sum of principal amount and interest is divided by the tenure, i.e., number of months, in which the loan has to be repaid. This amount has to be paid monthly. The interest component of the EMI would be larger during the initial months and gradually reduce with each payment. The exact percentage allocated towards payment of the principal depends on the interest rate. Even though your monthly EMI payment won’t change, the proportion of principal and interest components will change with time. With each successive payment, you’ll pay more towards the principal and less in interest.

Formula of EMI calculation:

where

**E** is EMI

**P** is Principal Loan Amount

**r** is rate of interest calculated on monthly basis. (i.e., r = Rate of Annual interest/12/100. If rate of interest is 10.5% per annum, then r = 10.5/12/100=0.00875)

**n** is loan term / tenure / duration in number of months

For example, if you borrow ₹10,00,000 from the bank at 10.5% annual interest for a period of 10 years (i.e., 120 months), then EMI = ₹10,00,000 * 0.00875 * (1 + 0.00875)

^{120}/ ((1 + 0.00875)^{120}– 1) = ₹13,493. i.e., you will have to pay ₹13,493 for 120 months to repay the entire loan amount. The total amount payable will be ₹13,493 * 120 = ₹16,19,220 that includes ₹6,19,220 as interest toward the loan.

Computing EMI for different combinations of principal loan amount, interest rates and loan term using the above EMI formula by hand is time consuming, complex and error prone. Our EMI calculator automates this calculation for you and gives you the result in a split second along with visual charts displaying payment schedule and the break-up of total payment.

#### 1.Loan Amount

Describes the maximum amount that a borrower can borrow. The maximum loan amount is based on a combination of different factors involving the specific loan program, the value of the property that secures the loan and the borrower's qualifying ratios and credit history.

#### 2.Interest Rate

An interest rate, is the amount of interest due per period, as a proportion of the amount lent, deposited or borrowed interest rate is the amount charged, expressed as a percentage of principal, by a lender to a borrower for the use of assets.

#### 3.Loan Tenure

A fine balance between EMI amount and Home Loan Tenure. A home loan helps you realize your dream of having your own home. A home loan comes with its own financial commitment, in the form of EMI (Equated Monthly Installments) that has to be serviced by you diligently over the tenure of the loan.

#### 4.EMI

EMI stands for Equated Monthly Installment

It is a fixed payment amount made by a borrower to a lender at a specified date each calendar month. Equated monthly installments are used to pay off both interest and principal each month so that over a specified number of years, the loan is paid off in full.

#### Floating Rate v/s Fixed Rate

**Floating Rates** or floating interest rates, the EMIs would fluctuate as per the market dynamics as interest rate increases or decreases. On the other hand for **Fixed rate** of interest on a loan would mean that the equated monthly installments or EMIs would remain constant over the tenure of the loan

#### CIBIL
