BOI Security for Car Loan

Computation of EMI

Subject to the borrowing limits, you are free to apply for a loan of the amount you desire. EMI is generally computed as the sum of the Loan amount and interest divided by the term in months. The interest may be loaded by the processing fees and other charges.

BOI offers up to 85% of the on-road price of the car including registration and insurance. This is further subject to your income.

Factors affecting Bank of India Car Loan EMI

  • Loan amount – The bigger car you purchase the higher the on-road price. Since loan amount comprises a significant proportion of your EMI, the higher the price of the car the bigger your EMI.
  • Interest rate – Interest is the payment you make to the lender in exchange for use of the money he lends you and the risk he bears on your behalf. BOI offers an interest rate of 9.45% of the loan amount. The interest will therefore be higher for larger cars as compared to smaller cars – simply because larger cars cost more than smaller cars. This can directly impact your EMI – ergo, the larger – or more expensive – the car the larger the EMI you pay for repayment of your loan.
  • Loan tenure – Also known as term or loan period, loan tenure is the period (number of years or months) over which you wish to repay your loan. If you elect to repay over a longer period, your total repayable amount will be spread thinner, making your EMI lower. If on the other hand you wish to pay off your loan quickly within a short period, you will have to pay more every month. This would depend to a great extent on your monthly income.

BOI allows a maximum term of 7 years.

Other Significant Facts

Some other important facts about BOI Car Loan –

  • You can include your spouse or partner’s income in the loan computation by making them a co-applicant to the loan. This will significantly improve your eligibility for loan.
  • You can register an ECS mandate to your BOI account for payment of EMI. An ECS mandate is a standing order to the bank to debit the amount of EMI from your bank account and make payment towards loan repayment.
  • You can also register ECS mandate to other bank accounts.
  • A good credit rating or credit score can significantly reduce your EMI. A credit rating is your history of loan repayment which is taken into consideration at the time of computation of EMI. Credit Score is a numerical value assigned by the credit bureau which reflects your credibility as far as eligibility for loan is concerned. This is applicable to all types of loans. A high credit score automatically means lower EMI since there are no loads on your interest.
