Formula with an Illustration

Let’s assume you have invested ₹100 at 1 Rupee interest per month.


It means, your yearly interest = 1 x 12 = 12%

In the same way, with 2 Rupee interest on ₹100, the percentage = 2 x 12 = 24%


Now let's see how to calculate 2 Rupee interest for ₹1 Lakh


Assume that you have invested ₹1,00,000 for monthly payouts at ₹2 Rupee interest, your rate of interest would be 24%.


Refer to the formula.


Monthly rate of interest = 24/12 = 2%

Additionally, monthly interest to be received = 1,00,000*2/100 = ₹2000


You can calculate 2 Rupee interest for ₹1 Lakh by using the simple interest method. Simple interest can be calculated with the formula of


l = p× r × t,


where “I” stands for interest, “p” stands for principal, “r” stands for the rate of interest and “t” stands for the amount of time.


You can also calculate 2 Rupee interest for ₹1 Lakhs by using compound interest method. Compound interest can also be calculated using the same formula of simple interest.
