Above video helps you to understand the basics of your existing home loan. It also helps you to understand important factors if you are planning to take a new home loan.

## EMI components of Home Loan

As seen in above video, there are 2 components in Home Loan EMI that you pay every month:

• Principal Amount – This amount is what you pay back against the amount you have taken as loan. Every month’s principal amount from EMI will be reduced from your total outstanding balance after every EMI you pay
• Interest Amount – This is the interest amount that goes to the banks as their profits for lending you the loan amount. Every month’s interest amount from EMI is calculated as per the remaining outstanding balance in your home loan

For example, if loan amount is Rs. 30,00,000, tenure is 10 Years and interest rate is 10%, below are the EMI, principal and interest components for mentioned loan details for first 5 months:

As seen above, for first month the Principal amount in EMI is ₹ 14,645 and Interest amount is ₹ 25,000. EMI is ₹ 39,645 which you can find out by using below home loan calculator.

For first month interest calculation, below are the steps:

• Annual interest rate of 10% is divided by 12 to get monthly interest rate = 10% / 12 = 0.83%
• This interest rate is multiple by balance in first month and divided by 100 to get interest amount = 0.83% * ₹ 30,00,000 / 100 = ₹ 25,000
• Now this interest amount is subtracted from EMI to get principal amount = ₹ 39,645 – ₹ 25,000 = ₹ 14,645
• Ans this process is repeated every month on after reducing the balance based on the principal amount paid every month

As seen, the principal amount is increasing with time and interest amount is decreasing with time.

## Fixed vs Floating Interest Rates

There are 2 types of interest rates in home loan:

• Fixed Interest Rate – The Interest rate is fixed in this case throughout the tenure of your home loan. This will be 2% to 3% higher than the current floating interest rate on home loans. It doesn’t matter what new policy is announced or existing policy is updated, the interest rate will be fixed
• Floating interest Rate – The interest rate of new home loans are usually floating interest rate, and they change with time due to RBI repo rate changes or other factors. With changing interest rate, usually the EMI component is kept same but your loan tenure changes.

### Why Home Loan Tenure Increase in Floating rate home loans?

In floating interest rate home loans, when interest rate increases, the interest portion on your remaining home loan balance will also increase, but since bank cannot increase the EMI amount you pay every month, you pay extra interest amount with the help of increased tenure.

## Impact of High Interest Rate

When you want to opt for a home loan, you should go for low interest rates home loan.

High interest rate meaning you have to pay more interest amount throughout the loan tenure – more interest amounts in every month’s EMI.

Let us compare the interest amounts you have to pay with example in below table:

As seen in above table, the interest amount is increasing with the increase in interest rates. Also, it is noticeable that the EMIs are also increasing with the increase in interest rates.

So it is best to opt for home loans from banks providing at low interest rates to keep your EMI and interest amounts to be paid low.

## Interest Rate Change Effect

When interest rate changes in floating interest rate home loans, automatically your tenure is increased, since EMI cannot be increased without your consent.

## Home Loan Prepayment

It is not true that the total interest amount you are supposed to pay at the start of the home loan, needs to be paid by you in full.

During your home loan tenure, you can make some home loan prepayments to save the loan interest amount you have to pay.

Home Loan Prepayment or part payment is a way to pay some extra amount in your loan account to reduce remaining principal balance. This helps in reducing the interest component in your EMI that you pay every month.

For example, in above table of 10% interest rate for Rs. 30 Lakh loan for 10 years, you need to pay total interest amount of Rs. 17,57,427 initially at the start of the loan. But if you make prepayment of Rs. 50,000 after your 6th EMI (after half year of loan), your total interest amount payout will be Rs. 16,79,860, thus saving Rs. 77,566 of interest amount throughout the loan tenure.

This is how home loan prepayment can help you in saving loan interest amount:

Now home loan prepayments need planning to save some amount of money to be paid in your loan account. You can open RD (Recurring Deposit) to save some amount every 6 month and make home loan prepayments.
