EMI stands for “Equated Monthly Instalment” which is an agreement between a borrower and a lender in which the borrower pays the loan amount taken as loan from lender in form of monthly investment with interest over a pre-determined period.

- Tenure of loan – 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 case of a monthly rest, the balance loan amount is recalculated and decreases every month.
Factors affecting EMI –
- if the borrower pays the loan by making a pre-payment through the tenure of 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 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.
How is 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
