How is Home Loan EMI calculated?
The formula used to calculate the EMI is
EMI = [P x R x (1+R) ^N]/[(1+R) ^N-1]
Where P = Loan amount
R = Rate of interest
N = Tenure in number of months
Using the formula, you now have an idea that higher the loan amount or the rate of interest higher the EMI. Well the EMI payments decrease with the increase in tenure. But why to get into this much of hassle when you can do it all much more efficiently using an EMI calculator.
What are the factors that your Home Loan EMI is dependent upon?
- Amount borrowed – EMI is dependent on the amount and the interest is also calculated on this principal amount.
- Rate of Interest- It is the Rate at which interest will be computed. It is advisable to check the rate of interest of different banks before making a final choice.
- Tenure of loan- It refers to the total amount of Time in which the repayment will be done.
- Monthly resting period – resting period is the regular interval at which the loan amount balance is recalculated and refers to the periodicity of compounding. For example, in the case of a monthly rest, the balance loan amount is recalculated and decreases every month.
Other Factors affecting Home Loan EMI
- If the borrower pays the loan by making a pre-payment through the tenure of the loan, either the subsequent EMI’s get reduced or the tenure is reduced or even both can happen. In the opposite case if the borrower skips an EMI then the EMI’s increase or the tenure increases or even both.
- Also, in case of floating rate loans if the rate of interest decreases the EMI reduces or the tenure decreases or even both. On an increase in the rate of interest the reverse happens.
Flexible loan repayment option
Some banks offer flexible repayment of loans option in which the EMI’s vary over time. In step-up loans, you pay lower EMI in starting which eventually increases. In cases of step-down loans, you pay higher EMI in starting which decreases over the period.
