Multiplier Method – This method helps you to calculate your loan amount that you are eligible for based on your net take home salary and company profile. Generally banks have multipliers between 9 to 18.
FOIR (Fixed Obligation Income Ratio) – In this method, your loan amount eligibility is calculated on the basis of maximum EMI or monthly installments in respect to net income. Banks or NBFCs generally accept 50 – 75% of your net income as EMI, existing obligations and credit card outstanding. If the obligations exceed bank’s norms, then bank will either reduce your loan amount or will increase the tenure of your loan.
