Our EMI calculator or loan EMI calculator is a state-of-the-art tool that can be used to calculate values like EMI payables and interest liabilities against the EMIs. If you want secured or unsecured loans, the first thing you must do is check out the monthly installments and their interest rates. You can get all the details on this page with a few simple clicks.

EMI or Equated Monthly Installments is a very popular term in the financing or loan sector. It refers to a fixed amount of money that borrowers pay to lenders every month. The fixed sum contains both the principal amount and its accrued interest. Through EMIs borrowers can afford a large loan amount because they can break down the loan amount into manageable monthly payments. The repayment period can range between a few months to several years.

Let us understand the concept of Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs) with the help of an example. But before diving into that, let us understand the formulae to calculate EMIs.

EMI = [P x R x (1+R) ^N]/ [(1+R) ^ (N-1)],

where –

P is the principal amount

R is the rate of interest

N is the loan tenure

Suppose you take out a loan of INR100,000 (P) at an annual interest rate of 5% (R) for a tenure of 5 years (N).

First, convert the annual interest rate into a monthly interest rate, as the formula requires the rate to be in the same period as the loan tenure. So, divide the annual interest rate by 12 (months):

Monthly Interest Rate (R) = 5% / 12 = 0.05 / 12 = 0.004167 (approx.)

Now, let's plug these values into the formula to calculate the EMI:

EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N] / [(1+R)^(N-1)]

EMI = [100,000 x 0.004167 x (1+0.004167)^60] / [(1+0.004167)^(60-1)]

Here, N = 5 years = 5 x 12 = 60 months.

Now, calculate (1+R)^N:

(1+0.004167)^60 = (1.004167)^60 ≈ 1.2837

Similarly, calculate (1+R)^(N-1):

(1+0.004167)^(60-1) = (1.004167)^59 ≈ 1.2782

Now, plug these values back into the formula:

EMI = [100,000 x 0.004167 x 1.2837] / 1.2782

EMI ≈ [520.83 x 1.2837] / 1.2782

EMI ≈ 668.52

So, the Equated Monthly Installment (EMI) for this loan would be approximately INR 668.52.

This is the fixed amount that you would pay each month for the entire loan tenure of 5 years to repay the loan amount along with the interest. Each month, a portion of this installment goes towards paying off the principal amount, and the rest goes towards paying off the interest. Over time, the ratio between the principal and interest portions changes, with more of the EMI going towards principal repayment as the loan matures.
