Home Loan EMI Calculation Method

  • I have already explained about home loan EMI calculation here
  • Home loan EMI can be easily calculated in excel using PMT function
  • PMT function takes 3 parameters: Interest RateRemaining months and Principal value remaining
  • Interest rate provided should be the monthly home loan interest rate divided by 100
  • Remaining months is the number of months remaining for which EMIs are yet to be paid
  • Principal value is the outstanding principal amount remaining in your loan account
  • Remember, your EMI consists of 2 things: Principal Amount and Interest Amount
  • Interest Amount is high initially, and decreases with time
  • Principal Amount is low initially, and increases with time

Components of Loan EMI

  • Basically there are 2 components of loan EMI – Principal Amount and Interest Amount
  • Principal amount is low initially and increases with time
  • Interest amount is high initially and decreases with time
  • Majority of Interest amount is paid by you during the first half of your loan tenure
  • As you move towards your loan closure by paying all EMIs on time, very less interest if left to be made making it difficult to save loan interest using loan prepayment option
  • Thus, it is recommended that if you are making loan prepayments to save interest, make the payments during initial half of the loan so that you can save maximum interest on your loan
  • Car Loan EMI is also calculated in same way as above

Factors affecting Loan EMI

  • 2 factors affect Loan EMI – Interest Rate and Tenure
  • Higher the interest rate, more interest amount you will be paying
  • Longer the tenure, more interest amount you will be paying
  • You should try to take loan with minimum interest rate and tenure to save maximum interest amount
  • Book a call to know more about loan EMI calculations and saving of loan interest

How to Save Loan Interest

  • As mentioned above, loan interest can be saved by either choosing loans with low interest rate, choosing less tenure or by making loan prepayments on existing loans
  • Remember to reduce tenure while making loan prepayments to save maximum interest on your home loan
  • Reducing EMI will not save your loan interest to maximum extent compared to reducing tenure
