What Is An EMI?
EMI or equated monthly installments is the fixed payment that is made by the borrower to the lender to repay a loan borrowed. EMIs are split into the principal and interest components. The loan should be fully repaid within a certain duration.
Let us now see how an EMI against a loan is calculated.
How Is An EMI Calculated?
The mathematical formula to calculate the EMI is EMI = P * r * (1+ r)n/(1+r)n - 1).
p = loan amount
R = interest rate
N = tenure in a number of months
For instance, if the rate of interest is 8% if the tenure is 12 months, and the principal amount is Rs. 2 Lakhs, then the EMI is Rs. 2,165.
- The EMI payments are in direct proportion to the loan amount and interest rates
- The EMI payments are inversely proportional to the tenure of the loan.
