What is EMI?
You may require a loan for different reasons. Some of these reasons could include starting a business, for a wedding, purchasing a new vehicle, taking a holiday or for any unforeseen emergency.
We take pride in partnering with you during such times. Depending on your requirement, you can avail of a loan from us. You can repay the loan through equated monthly instalments (EMIs).
Equated Monthly Installments is the systematic repayment of the borrowed amount by a borrower to the lender. This repayment occurs at a specific date over a fixed period which is agreed upon by both borrower and lender. The concept of EMIs is also applied in multiple forms of loans such as home loans, automobile loans, education loans, etc. The major advantage of EMI is that the borrower is aware of the exact amount to be paid each month and the exact duration of the installment period.
How Do EMI Calculators Work?
Three important factors majorly affect the final EMI amount that a borrower pays to the lender. These factors include interest rate (R), loan tenure (n) and principal amount (P).
These factors when put together, give out a very basic formula that can be used to calculate the EMI. The formula used is
Why should I use an EMI Calculator
Fullerton India’s online EMI calculators show you the exact amount you need to repay every month. Our EMI calculator is a free, easy-access tool that will show you the monthly amount just by taking inputs of your loan amount, tenure and interest rate. Thus, for a given loan amount and interest rate, you can understand how your EMI will change depending on the tenure you select. This will help you plan your finances better.
How Do I Use A EMI Calculator
EMI Calculators are simplified for your needs. These take a minimal amount of data from the borrower to give you the exact amount of EMI that needs to be paid.
The EMI Calculator will provide sliders to choose the loan amount, interest rate and loan tenure. By moving the sliders you can choose the appropriate values. You can even enter the relevant values in the text boxes. The EMI would be immediately displayed.
For example, if you are planning to take a loan worth Rs 3 lakhs at an interest rate of 12% for a period of 3 years, then you can:
- Move the ‘loan amount’ slider to Rs 3 lakhs, drag the rate of interest slider to 12% and pull the loan tenure slider to 36 months
- Alternatively, you can enter the required values in the text boxes.
If the calculated EMI amount is more than what you can manage to pay or less than what you had expected, you can accordingly increase or reduce the tenure to get the optimal EMI value.
