A normal shopping or purchase hampers your monthly budget, a loan has the same effect on your pocket for years not for months. To avoid that, lowest interest rate is the savior.


Thus, choosing or getting the lowest interest rate for your home loan would not have a bad impact on your pocket and expenses.


In India, recently almost all the top lenders have increased their home loan interest rates. This happens everytime bank increases MCLR or spread and also when RBI increases its repo rate. The increase in rate of home loans comes from here.

Impact of lowest home loan interest rate on EMI


A home loan EMI calculator is the easiest tool that can help you calculate home loan EMI in a few minutes. This tool would take into account the basic details of your home loan which are:


  • Loan amount

  • Tenure

  • Interest rate


Now, when you mention the above details in the calculator, it would give you the data of the EMI, the total interest outgo, and the total amount (principal+interest). Here is an example with the loan amount ₹20 lakhs with the tenure of 15 years and interest rate of 8.35% p.a.


EMI: 19,519

Total interest outgo: 15,13,480

Total amount: 35,13,480


Here is the formula to calculate the EMI or equated monthly installment:


E= P.r. (1+r)*n/((1+r)*n -1)


Where,


E=EMI

P=Principal loan amount

r= Rate of interest on monthly basis (r= Annual rate of interest/12/100)

n=Loan tenure
