Factors Affecting EMI of Home Loan 

Home Loan EMI can be calculated using an online Housing Loan Calculator which takes into account many factors like loan amount, interest rate, and the tenure or duration for which you are planning to avail the loan. 

  • Loan amount – This is the amount you want to borrow to fulfill your home needs. ‭‭The home loan amount mainly depends on the value of the property for which the loan is availed. 

Fincity offers Home Loan for amounts as low as Rs. 30 lakhs to as high as Rs. 5 Crores. 

  • Loan Tenure – Loan tenure is the duration over which a Home Loan is repaid. In practice, a shorter tenure results in higher EMIs but helps you save on the total interest payout of the loan. The longest loan tenure available across banks and NBFCs in India for buying a home on a loan is around 30 years, subject to the borrower’s current age and retirement age.  
  • Interest Rate – The Rate of Interest is the interest charged on the borrowed loan amount and is one of the components of monthly EMI along with principal repayment. 

Home Loan Amortization Calculation 

An amortization schedule is a table of periodic loan payments that shows the amount of principal and the amount of interest that make up each monthly payment until the loan is paid off at the end of its tenure. 

The Home Loan’s monthly EMI will be equal, in a schedule of amortization, but the component of the EMI, which consists of a principal payment and also the interest payment, will not remain the same every month, meaning it keeps on changing. 

The EMI schedule of loan for an amount of Rs.20 lakhs and for a tenure of 30 years is explained below in the table.

Formula for EMI Calculation 

Generally, the EMI for a Home Loan is calculated using the given formula: 

E = P * r * (1+r) ^ n / ([(1 + r) ^ n] – 1) 

In the formula mentioned above, 

E = Equated Installment 

This is the total obligations required to pay per month 

P = Amount of Loan 

This can be anywhere between Rs.15,00,000 to Rs.5,00,00,000 

r = Rate of Interest  

This means the interest rate per month. For Axis Bank, this ranges from 6.9% to 8.30%  

n = tenure in months  

Usually, the tenure for a home loan ranges from 15 years to 30 years. 

For Axis Bank Home Loans, the tenure ranges from 60 months all the way up to 360 months or 30 years. 

Home Loan EMI Calculator and its Benefits

An EMI or Equated Monthly Instalment is a fixed amount that a borrower must pay to the lender every month till the tenure of their loan ends.  

Calculating the EMI and its components can be a tiring and not-so-efficient task for most first-time financers. A home loan EMI calculator can easily do these complex calculations in seconds, and save you from the trouble of doing them manually. 

Performing such complicated home loan EMI calculations manually can be both time-consuming and inaccurate. A home loan monthly EMI calculator thus saves a lot of the valuable time of prospective home buyers. 

It gives you an accurate approximation, which is crucial for financial planning. There is almost no possibility of any inaccuracies or ambiguity. 

The procedure for calculating EMI for each type of loan is different. Therefore, home loan EMI calculation is different from personal loan EMI. It is recommended you use only specific EMI Calculators for specific types of EMI. 

The online calculator is also free for unlimited use. You can check the EMI for various amounts of loan amounts thus determining which amount suits your financial situation.

The processing charge is dependent on the bank and the loan scheme you are applying for, the processing charge thus is a variable metric. This fee is non-refundable. 
  • Prepayment charges: This is the fee or the penalty you will have to pay the lender, should you plan to repay your home loan before the completion of the tenure of the loan. 
  • Conversion fees: Some banks might also charge a small conversion fee if and when you decide to switch to a different loan scheme or even a different loan provider in order to decrease the interest rate associated with your current scheme. 
  • Cheque dishonor charges: This type of fee is levied when the loan provider, like the Bank or NBFC, is provided that a cheque issued by the borrower is found to be dishonored due to reasons such as insufficient funds in the borrower’s account. 
  • Home insurance: One of the best ways to protect the home is to insure it. The premium of this insurance should be paid directly to the concerned company during the insurance term to make sure that the insurance policy is running during the home loan tenure. 
  • Default charges: Loan providers also charge a penalty on delayed or missed repayments i.e., if you do not make your Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) or Pre-EMIs on time. But these types of defaulting charges vary from one bank to another. 
  • Incidental charges: These charges cover the expenses and costs incurred by the bank to recover dues from a borrower who has failed to make his monthly installments on time. 
  • Statutory/regulatory charges: The fee might include all the expenses associated with the Central Registry of Securitization Asset Reconstruction and Security Interest of India (CERSAI), Memorandum of Entry and Deposit, and also stamp duty.
