Home Loan EMI Calculator
How EMI Calculators Work?
To put it quite simply, an EMI calculator is a tool that will require you to enter the amount you want to borrow, the duration of the loan, the interest rates and the processing fee and it will do the rest. The basic formula that works behind an EMI calculator is:
E = P x r x (1+r)^n/((1+r)^n � 1)
E is the amount that you will have to pay every month; basically the EMI.
P is the amount that you want to borrow.
r is the rate of interest that is applicable but calculated on a monthly basis instead of the annual rate of interest. It is obtained by using the formula r = (annual interest/12) x 100.
n is the duration of the loan in terms of months. So if you select a term of 5 years, n will be 60.
This is the most basic formula that will be used by the calculator but there are some that may even include things like the processing fee for the loan, into the calculation of the monthly instalment. The processing fee will generally be a certain percentage of the amount being borrowed and can range from 1% to 3% but since it is decided by the bank it can be different for each bank.
Why is it Important to Use an EMI Calculator?
Whether you obtain a secured loan (home loan or car loan) or an unsecured loan (personal loan), you have to repay the loan through Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs) over a specified period of time called the loan tenure. The cost of your loan is calculated in terms of monthly payments. Loan EMI calculation can help you find out the monthly cost of your loan. Accordingly, you can create a monthly budget to create a balance between your income and expense.
