Factors affecting Home loan EMI

Home Loan EMI can be calculated using an 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 components 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 30 years, subject to borrower’s current age and retirement age. Convenient tenure on a home loan can be calculated using home loan tenure calculator.

Housing Loan Interest Calculator
You can calculate the interest you will pay over the loan tenure, especially in long tenure home loans of 20 - 30 years using a home loan installment 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 ₹ 1 lakh loan at different tenures:

Calculated Results for Home Loan EMI 5 years 10 years 15 years 30 years
EMI for a loan amount ₹ 1 lakh at 6.95% ₹ 1,978 ₹ 1,159 ₹ 896 ₹ 662
Total amount you pay back to the bank including principal and interest ₹ 1.19 Lakh ₹ 1.39 Lakh ₹ 1.61 Lakh ₹ 2.38 Lakh
Interest you have to pay during the loan tenure ₹ 18,680 ₹ 39,080 ₹ 61,280 ₹ 1.38 Lakh
  • At the lowest home loan rate of 6.95% the lowest EMI for maximum tenure of 30 years is ₹ 662 per lakh. You will pay an interest of ₹ 1.38 Lakh over a period of 30 years.
  • If you decide to take a loan for 15 years only, you will pay a higher EMI of ₹ 896. However, interest calculation comes to only ₹ 61,280 over a period of 15 years, which is significantly lower than the calculated amount for a 30 years loan.

₹ 50 Lakh₹ 44,802₹ 38,615₹ 35,180₹ 33,097
  • Today’s lowest EMI for a ₹ 16 lakh home loan is ₹ 10,591 at the lowest rate of 6.95% and maximum tenure of 30 years. EMI for ₹ 16 lakh home loan is ₹ 14,337 taken for a shorter period of 15 years.

Amortization Schedule

An amortization schedule refers to a complete table of periodic loan payments presenting the principal and interest amount that comprise each payment until the loan is repaid. In simple terms, it provides a roadmap of spreading out a credit option like home loans into a series of fixed payments. While each monthly payment remains the same, the payment is made up of parts that vary over time. It assists banks and financial institutes to keep a track of what they owe and when, as well as forecast the outstanding balance or interest at any point of the repayment schedule.

Home Loan Amortization Calculator

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

In the Amortization schedule, your Home Loan monthly EMI will be equal, but the component of EMI, which consists of interest payment and principal payment will not remain the same every month, it keeps on changing.

Illustration: How to read an amortization schedule

Suppose if you take a Home Loan of ₹ 20 Lakh for 5 years at an interest rate of 6.95%. EMI calculated for this loan amount is ₹ 39,555 and the total annual EMIs to be paid annually is ₹ 4,74,663. The EMI schedule of loan for 5 years is explained below in the table –

Amortization Schedule for a Home Loan of ₹ 20 Lakh over the 5 years

Year Interest paid during the year Principal repaid during the year Total amount paid during the year (Interest + Principal) Outstanding Principal
2020 ₹ 45,358 ₹ 1,12,863 ₹ 1,58,221 ₹ 18,87,137
2021 ₹ 1,20,000 ₹ 3,54,663 ₹ 4,74,663 ₹ 15,32,474
2022 ₹ 94,550 ₹ 3,80,113 ₹ 4,74,663 ₹ 11,52,361
2023 ₹ 67,274 ₹ 4,07,388 ₹ 4,74,663 ₹ 7,44,973
2024 ₹ 38,041 ₹ 4,36,621 ₹ 4,74,663 ₹ 3,08,351
2025 ₹ 8,091 ₹ 3,08,351 ₹ 3,16,442 -₹ 0

Each Home Loan EMI consists of both amounts of interest as well as the principal repaid. The interest component of EMI goes down while the principal component goes up in both cases while doing the calculation.

In the above illustration, on a Home Loan of ₹ 20 Lakh, taken at the lowest interest rate of 6.95%, EMI paid is ₹ 39,555 and an annual total of EMIs is ₹ 4,74,663, the interest component is ₹ 1,28,099 while the principal component is ₹ 3,46,564 in year 1 of loan disbursement. You repay only 17.33% of the total principal after paying 12 EMIs during the first year.

In year 5, the interest component of EMI is around 3.67%, while the principal component is around 96.33%. Upto 5 years, you have cumulatively repaid 100% of your total Home Loan.

Home Loan Repayment Calculator

Home loan repayment is the term referred for paying back the loan amount to the lender. Repayment of home loan is made through EMIs or installments, with every EMI constituting principal amount and interest amount.

Hence, it is extremely essential to calculate the comfortable amount of Home loan repayment or EMI once can pay before deciding the loan amount by using Home loan repayment calculator or Home loan EMI calculators. Please remember that a home loan repayment is different from a home loan prepayment. While prepayment is paying the loan in advance, repayment is paying the loan on scheduled time.

Suppose you take a loan of ₹ 10 Lakh for 10 years at an interest rate of 8.50%. Your EMI of the loan is ₹ 12,399 per month and tha annual total of EMI is ₹ 1.48 lakh. This is how your original loan schedule looks like till Year 5. On loan amount of ₹ 10 Lakh, you make payment of ₹ 12,399 every month and annual payment of ₹ 1,48,788. By the end of year 5, you have outstanding principal of ₹ 6.04 lakh and you have to pay another 60 home loan 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 Amount₹ 10 Lakh
Tenure (in months)120
Interest Rate8.50%
Monthly EMI, ₹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 a surplus amount of ₹ 2.50 Lakh and you decide to prepay the loan. Now there can be two scenarios:

Scenario 1: What will happen if I prepay my home loan and opt to reduce my loan tenure, while keeping the house loan EMI unchanged

If you have ₹ 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 ₹ 2.50 Lakh, outstanding principal is reduced to ₹ 3.54 Lakh in comparison to ₹ 6.04 Lakh in your original schedule. If you opt to reduce your loan tenure, at the end of 5 years you are left to pay only 33 more home loan EMIs compared to 60 EMIs as per your original loan schedule. You repay back your complete loan in 27 months less than the original loan schedule with while paying a constant instalment or EMI of ₹ 12,399. Please refer to table below to understand the EMI calculations in case of a prepayment, done using Home loan EMI calculator:

Revised Schedule, after prepayment of ₹ 2,50,000 at the end of year 5
Option 1: Same EMI, shorter tenure
Loan Amount₹ 10 Lakh
Tenure (in months)93
Interest Rate8.50%
Monthly EMI, ₹12,399
Early Payment, ₹2.50 Lakh in 5th year
Loan schedule Principal repaid Principal outstanding

Year 272,1908.61 Lakh
Year 378,5717.82 Lakh
Year 485,5166.97 Lakh
Year 534,30753.54 Lakh

Scenario 2: What will happen if I prepay my home loan and opt to reduce my EMI, while keeping the loan tenure unchanged

In the same illustration, as your loan outstanding reduces and you opt to reduce EMI, your revised home loan EMI stands at ₹ 7,269, compared to ₹ 12,399 earlier. Your remaining loan tenure remains unchanged at 60 months and you pay an EMI of ₹ 7,269 which is lower by ₹ 5,130 as per your original loan Amortization schedule. Please refer to table below to understand the EMI calculations through home EMI calculators in case of a prepayment under Option 2:

Revised Schedule, after prepayment of ₹ 2.50 Lakh at the end of year 5
Option 2: Same tenure, lower EMI
