What is EMI?
EMI or Equated Monthly Installment is the fixed amount paid by a borrower on a monthly basis to the lender. It is generally paid by the customer on a particular calendar date until the principal amount and the total interest accrued on it for the loan duration are paid off. The EMI amount is calculated in such a way that the interest of the loan is larger during the initial months and reduces gradually with each payment. Key parameters used in EMI calculation for
 Principal amount: The base amount that is lent to the customer as loan is called the principal amount. It may differ from lender to lender based on their evaluation of the customer’s credit profile.
 Interest Rate: The rate of interest is the percentage which can be levied on the principal amount of a loan on a periodic basis as a proportion of the amount lent which can be upto
 Loan Duration: The loan duration or loan term, also commonly referred to as “tenor” is the period for which a loan is sanctioned. The borrower must pay the principal sum and the total interest within the loan duration.
What is
How is the EMI calculated for
EMI for
\(E\;=\;P\;×\;r\;×\;\)\((1\;+\;r)^n \above 1pt (1\;+\;r)^n\;\;1\)
Where,
\(E\;\) is the EMI
\(P\;\) is the principal amount
\(r\;\) is the monthly rate of interest
\(n\;\) is the number of months
Example of EMI calculation
The monthly interest rate becomes:
\(r = \)\(13.5 \above 1pt 12×100\)\( = 0.01125\)
Using the formula, the EMI can be calculated as:
\(E = 10000 × 0.01125 × \)\((1 + 0.01125)^3 \above 1 pt (1 + 0.01125)^3  1\)
Calculating the above expression gives,
\(E = 3408.61\)
which means you need to ₹\(3408.61\) as EMI for a loan of ₹\(10,000\) for \(3\;months\) if borrowed
at
\(13.5\%\) interest rate.
Now, let’s look at the EMI and interest breakdown with each installment:
As we can see, the amount outstanding at the end of 3 months becomes zero which means the entire
loan amount along with interest gets paid. We also observe that the interest component reduces after
every month.
The total interest paid during the loan tenor is \(112.5 + 75.42 + 37.92 = 225.84\)
