Factors affecting Home loan EMI

Home Loan EMI can be calculated using online Housing Loan Calculator which takes into account factors such as loan amount, rate of interest and the tenure for which you are planning to avail the loan.

  • Loan amount – is the amount you want to borrow to fulfil your needs. ‭Home loan amount depends on value of the property. Higher the loan amount, higher will be the EMI.
  • Rate of interest – is the interest charged on borrowed loan amount and is one of the component of monthly EMI along with principal repayment . Lower the home loan interest rate, lower the EMI.
  • Loan Tenure – Longest loan tenure available across banks in India for buying a house on loan is 35 years, subject to borrower’s current age and retirement age.

Housing Loan Interest Calculator
You can calculate the interest you will pay over the loan tenure, especially in long tenure home loans of 20-35 years using a EMI calculator which can also be called as Interest Calculator. Longer the loan tenure, higher will be the interest charges you will pay.

Following table provides a comparison of EMI and interest to be paid on a Rs. 1 lakh loan at different tenures:

Calculated Results for Home Loan EMI 5 years 10 years 15 years 35 years
EMI for a loan amount Rs. 1 lakh at 7.90% ₹ 2,023 ₹ 1,208 ₹ 950 ₹ 703
Total amount you pay back to the bank including principal and interest ₹ 1.21 Lakh ₹ 1.45 Lakh ₹ 1.71 Lakh ₹ 2.95 Lakh
Interest you have to pay during the loan tenure ₹ 21,380 ₹ 44,960 ₹ 71,000 ₹ 1.95 Lakh
  • At the lowest home loan rate of 7.90% the lowest EMI for maximum tenure of 35 years is Rs. 703 per lakh. You will pay an interest of Rs. 1.95 Lakh over a period of 35 years.
  • If you decide to take a loan for 15 years only, you will pay a higher EMI of Rs. 950. However, interest calculation comes to only Rs. 71,000 over a period of 15 years, which is significantly lower than the calculated amount for a 35 years loan.
Home Loan EMI for different loan amounts

Housing Loan EMI are equal monthly installements that you pay to the bank to repay your loan. EMI is calculated using three parameters of loan amount, tenure and interest rate of the loan. The table below provides a comparison of EMI for different loan amount and tenure at today’s best interest rate of 7.90%.

EMI for various home loan amounts15 years20 years25 years35 years
Rs. 16 LakhRs. 15,198Rs. 13,284Rs. 12,243Rs. 11,629
Rs. 20 LakhRs. 18,998Rs. 16,605Rs. 15,304Rs. 14,536

Rs. 50 LakhRs. 47,494Rs. 41,511Rs. 38,260Rs. 36,340
  • Today’s lowest EMI for a Rs. 16 lakh home loan is Rs. 11,629 at the lowest rate of 7.90% and maximum tenure of 35 years. EMI for Rs. 16 lakh home loan is Rs. 15,198 taken for a shorter period of 15 years.
  • Current EMI for Rs. 25 lakhs loan is Rs. 18,170 and EMI for Rs. 30 lakh loan is Rs. 21,804 for a 35 year loan at the minimum interest rate.

In summary, higher loan amount taken for a shorter tenure will translate into high EMIs compared to a smaller loan amount taken for a longer tenure.

Home Loan EMI Calculator Formula

Home Loan EMI is calculated using the mathematical formula
P*r* (1+r)^n/([(1+r)^n]-1)
In above formula, P is the loan amount that you want to borrow
r is the rate of interest per month 
n is the tenure of loan repayment in months
To calculate Home Loan EMI, you can also use an online home loan calculator in which you need to input the the loan amount, rate of interest and the tenure for which you want to borrow and get the EMI and interest amount results on an immediate basis.

Why should you use online home loan calculator?

  • Any home loan borrower should know their EMI in advance as this is the amount that they have to pay to the bank every month from their income.
  • The calculator allows borrowers to compare multiple EMIs for different loan tenures as well as rates and choose the loan EMI scheme that suits their monthly budget.

What is home loan amortization calculator?

An Amortization schedule gives break-up of the monthly EMI that goes towards repaying your loan amount and pay an interest on your home loan.

While each EMI is equal, the components of EMI that is the interest payment and principal payment are not the same every month. In early days of repayment, interest component is high and principal component is low. This is the reason that many times when you decide to prepay your loan during the first few years, you realise that you have repaid a very small proportion of your loan despite paying regular EMIs for years.

On an average, you repay back only 3 - 4 % of your loan in year 1 of taking a home loan and not more than 20 - 21% of your loan till year 5. Hence, it is important to understand your Amortization table, before taking a loan.

Illustration: How to read an Amortization schedule

Suppose you take a house loan of Rs. 1,000,000 for 15 years for the construction of your house at an interest rate of 8.50%. EMI calculated is Rs. 9,847 and total annual EMIs to be paid is Rs.118,169. The EMI schedule of your home loan for next 15 years (from January 2020 to December 2034) is explained below in the table -

Amortization Schedule for a Home Loan of Rs. 10 lakh over the 15 year period
Year Interest paid during the year (as a % of annual EMIs) Principal repaid during the year (as % of annual EMIs) Cumulative principal repayment (in %)
2020 71% 29% 3.4
2021 68% 32% 7.2
2022 65% 35% 11.3
2023 62% 38% 15.8
2024 59% 41% 20.6
2025 55% 45% 25.8
2026 51% 49% 31.6
2027 47% 53% 37.8
2028 43% 57% 44.6
2029 37% 63% 52
2030 32% 68% 60
2031 26% 74% 68.9
2032 19% 81% 78.3
2033 12% 88% 88.7
2034 4% 96% 100
  • In the above illustration, on a home loan of Rs. 10 lakh, EMI calculated is Rs. 9,847. However, at the end of year 1, only 30% of your EMIs are used to repay the loan with the remaining 70% going as interest payment. Hence, you end up repaying 3.4% of the loan amount of Rs. 10 lakh despite paying 12 EMIs during first year.
  • In year 2024 (year 5), on the same loan, interest comprises 59% of total EMI payments with the rest 41% constituted by principal repayments. Upto year 5, you cumulatively repay only 20.6 % of your total loan after paying EMIs for 5 year or 60 months. If you decide to close or transfer your loan at this stage, you will have to prepay 79.4% of our original loan amount.
  • In year 15, interest component is around 4% while principal component is around 96%. Upto year 15, you have cumulatively repaid 100% of your total loan.

Home Loan Prepayment Calculator

Prepayment calculator shows your savings as every prepayment you make have an impact on your EMI and tenure. Part prepayment is a amount that you pay above your EMI when you have surplus money with yourself. When you part prepay your loan, banks will either allow you to reduce your EMI with the same tenure or keep the EMI same while reducing the repayment tenure as explained in the illustration below:

We have explained the way EMI or tenure re-adjust after part pre-payment of housing loan in the illustration below: 

Suppose you take a loan of Rs. 10 Lakh for 10 years at an interest rate of 8.50%. Your EMI of the loan is Rs. 12,399 per month and annual total of EMI is Rs. 1.48 lakh. This is how your original loan schedule looks like till Year 5. On loan amount of Rs. 10 Lakh, you make payment of Rs. 12,399 every month and annual payment of Rs. 1,48,788. By the end of year 5, you have outstanding principal of Rs. 6.04 lakh and you have to pay another 60 EMIs to fully pay down your loan. The original schedule of you loan till year 5, has been shown in the table below:

Original Schedule
Loan AmountRs. 10 Lakh
Tenure (in months)120
Interest Rate8.50%
Monthly EMI, Rs.12,399
Loan schedule Principal repaid Principal outstanding
Year 166,3279.33 Lakh
Year 272,1908.61 Lakh
Year 378,5717.82 Lakh
Year 485,5166.97 Lakh
Year 593,0756.04 Lakh

Now at the end of year 5, you have surplus amount of Rs. 2.50 Lakh and you decide to prepay the loan. You have two options:
Option 1: Reduce your loan tenure and keep your EMI same
Option 2: Reduce your EMIs and keep the loan tenure unchanged

Option 1: Reduce your loan tenure and keep your EMI same

If you have Rs. 2,50,000 as surplus amount and decide to keep the EMI same and reduce the tenure, this is what will happen.

At the end of 5 years, when you prepay an amount of Rs. 2.50 Lakh, outstanding principal is reduced to Rs. 3.54 Lakh as comparison to Rs. 6.04 Lakh in your original schedule. As your loan outstanding reduces and you opt to reduce your loan tenure, at the end of 5 years you are left to pay only 33 more EMIs compared to 60 EMIs as planned in your original loan schedule. As a result of this change, your total housing loan tenure gets reduced to 93 months compared to 120 months, which was scheduled earlier. In summary, you repay back your complete loan in 27 months less than what you had planned earlier and continue paying an EMI of Rs. 12,399 every month. Please refer to table below to understand the EMI calculations in case of a prepayment:

Revised Schedule, after prepayment of Rs. 2,50,000 at the end of year 5
Option 1: Same EMI, shorter tenure
Loan AmountRs. 10 Lakh
Tenure (in months)93
Interest Rate8.50%
Monthly EMI, Rs.12,399
Early Payment, Rs.2.50 Lakh in 5th year
Loan schedule Principal repaid Principal outstanding
Year 166,3279.33 Lakh
Year 272,1908.61 Lakh
Year 378,5717.82 Lakh
Year 485,5166.97 Lakh
Year 534,30753.54 Lakh
Option – 2 : Reduce your EMI and keep the loan tenure same

At the end of 5 years, when you prepay an amount of Rs. 2.50 Lakh, outstanding principal is reduced to Rs. 3.54 Lakh as comparison to Rs. 6.04 Lakh in your original schedule. As your loan outstanding reduces and you opt to reduce EMI, your revised EMI stands at Rs. 7,269, compared to Rs. 12,399 earlier. Your remaining loan tenure remains unchanged at 60 months and you pay an EMI of Rs. 7,269 which is lower by Rs. 5,130 as per your original loan Amortization schedule. Please refer to table below to understand the EMI calculations in case of a prepayment under Option 2:

Revised Schedule, after prepayment of Rs. 2.50 Lakh at the end of year 5
Option 2: Same tenure, lower EMI
Loan AmountRs. 10 Lakh

Should I opt for a lower EMI or a lower tenure in case I prepay a loan?

The choice between the two options of reducing your EMI or your loan tenure depends on your monthly finances

If you plan to prepay, continuing to pay same EMI over a shorter tenure can result in significantly lower interest amount on your home loan and hence, should be the preferred choice whenever possible. If you feel that you want to reduce your EMI to be able to have more monthly income available, you can opt to reduce your EMI but, in this case, be prepared to pay high interest charges. You can use online prepayment calculator to know the impact of prepayment on your EMIs and tenure better.
