Financial planning is absolutely critical If you want your financial position to be secure and stable. However, before planning your finances, you must know how much you need to pay for each of these commitments. The home loan EMI calculator helps you to make an informed decision about creating a provision for each commitment beforehand.
It's very easy to use the home loan EMI calculator. All you need to do is key-in certain inputs. These include:
It is the amount that you want to avail.
This is the cost of your home loan that needs to be paid as a part of your EMIs. .
This is the repayment tenure over which you will pay your EMIs.
After you enter the inputs, you will instantly get the EMI amount that needs to be paid.
Let us say that you have borrowed INR 20 lakh from a bank at the rate of 10.25% for a period of ten years or 120 months.
Then your EMI as per the formula would be: INR 20 lakh*0.008542*(1+0.008542) ^120/((1+0.008542)^120-1))= INR 26,708 per month.
In a span of 120 months, you will end up paying INR 32,04,919. Out of this, INR 12, 04,919 will be paid towards the interest.
EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^N-1]
EMI - Equated Monthly Instalment
P - Principal amount (amount borrowed as loan)
R - monthly rate of interest
N - Loan repayment tenure (in months)
The above formula is used to calculate home loan EMIs either manually or through MS Excel. Calculating EMIs manually can take a lot of time. Hence, it is best to use a home loan calculator to calculate your EMIs.
A home loan is a long-term commitment. Hence, you need to know the exact monthly amount that you would require to keep aside. Home loan calculator is beneficial for calculating a manageable EMI for you. Once you are sure you can meet the EMI payments regularly, you will be able to enter into an agreement with the bank. You can also negotiate the rate of interest or the tenure of the loan if you want an EMI that is manageable for you.

Reducing your home loan EMI is a good way to bring down costs and manage your finances. Here are some ways through which you can reduce the EMI:
Here is a list of factors that affect Home Loan EMI:
Any kind of change in your home loan interest rate during the tenure can have a positive or negative impact on your EMI. If you have already taken a home loan with floating interest rates then there will be changes in your EMI depending on the prevalent lending rates in the market. This means, every time there’s changes in bank rates, your EMI will be affected.
Even the slightest change in the tenure of the loan can impact your monthly equated installment. The basic principle says that, the longer the tenure, the lower will be your loan EMI and vice versa.
Prepaying your home loan brings down the principal amount and lowers the interest burden on you. However, you may be charged with a pre-payment penalty. You can try and negotiate with your lender to bring down the pre-payment penalty charges to as little as possible.
A step-up home loan repayment option is considered for those who have just got started with their career. Your EMI will increase with time. On the other hand, Step-down payment is convenient for those who are close to their retirement. Here, you start with EMIs of high amounts and gradually pay lesser with time.
Home Loan Prepayment is a facility that helps you repay your home loans if you have surplus funds before the completion of your home loan tenure. This ultimately reduces the outstanding principal amount owed, and in turn, reduces your EMIs or the remaining loan tenure.
Pre-EMI is the applicable interest payment to the amount that is disbursed over the entire tenure of a home loan. It begins when the house is under construction. Once the home structure is done, your loan pre-payments will stop. Post this, the regular EMI payments begin.
Deduction for Interest Paid on Home Loan
Tax deduction for interest paid on a home loan during the pre-construction period
Deduction on Principal amount repayment
Deduction for Stamp Duty and Registration Charges
Additional deduction under section 80EE allowed to the home buyers
Additional deduction under section 80EEA for homebuyers
Co-owners of the property can claim deduction for Joint Home Loan
It is not mandatory to have a co-applicant. If someone is the co-owner of the property in question, it is necessary that he/she also be the co-applicant for the Home Loan. If you are the sole owner of the property, any member of your immediate family can be your co-applicant.

Provisional Interest Certificate gives the Principal and Interest breakup for the scheduled EMI for a complete Financial Year i.e. from April to March. This calculation can be used for claiming the Income Tax rebates in appropriate cases under Section 80C as well as Section 24 of the Income Tax Act. The calculations are based upon Current Principal Balances, Current ROI and Current EMI along with any changes recorded in the Current Financial Year. Any change that may happen before the end of the Financial Year will alter the calculation and the figures. You can get this by logging in to our Customer Portal.
The Provisional Income Tax Certificate can change under certain circumstances like change in Interest Rate. The projection is calculated on “as is” basis and does not consider any future change that may happen either on the Interest, EMI or the Principal.
Your EMI consists of two parts—paying back the principal amount you borrowed, plus the interest rates charged ‘on’ it. Three factors come into the equation—how much you borrowed, the rate of interest, and the loan tenure. There are ways to bring your EMI down: for one, it drops automatically if there is a drop in the interest rates, or if you pay back more than you need to (called a ‘partial prepayment’).
There are two ways of going about this: 1. An Electronic Clearing Service (ECS) is an easy and convenient option, available exclusively to those that have a bank account. Your EMIs get paid out automatically from your account every month, at a specified date. 2. With us, you may also choose to hand in a fresh set of Post-Dated Cheques (PDCs) ahead of time, from any bank account. Note that this is only for those customers in non-ECS locations. ECS is the preferred mode, as it’s faster and there are no chances of errors. Plus, there’s no hassle of replacing PDCs when the EMI changes, or when they run out.
When there’s an unexpected increase in interest rates, we first attempt to make things easier on you by increasing the loan tenure—within permissible limits. If this doesn’t resolve the issue—covering interests under current EMI—we’ll need to increase the EMI. Another solution—you can choose to part-prepay online via the Customer portal. Alternatively, you can make a partial prepayment at our nearest branch to reduce the interest amount.
You can choose to pay your EMIs by electronic methods (ECS), by handing in post-dated cheques, or through direct payments. Going in for the ECS option, you’ll need to pay the revised amount from the subsequent month; you’ll be paying the differential amount separately, during the current month. If you’re going with the PDCs, you’ll need to completely replace your old cheques. You can also choose to increase the EMI amount whenever you choose to during the loan tenure, which will result in reducing the loan tenure. To avail this option just logon to our Customer Portal.
When interest rates go up, the interest component of an EMI also goes up. The EMI is kept constant as explained in the previous section, which results in a lower principal component. If the rates move up continuously, then there might be a situation where the interest Component becomes more than the EMI. In such a situation, principal component (EMI minus interest component) gives a negative figure. Consequently, the outstanding balance, instead of being reduced from the opening principal with the principal component, gets increased with the negative principal component. This is commonly referred to as negative amortization. A loan where the amortization is negative does not get repaid, ever since the regular payments are insufficient to cover the interest component. The unpaid interest gets added to the principal and makes it grow. The situation gets reversed only when interest rates start falling. The customer does part-prepayment or increases the EMI.
In case of a home loan with variable rate, the interest rate used to calculate the interest component is subject to variation. When rates change, one of the following changes can be done to a loan: 1. The term of the Loan is extended (when rates go up) or contracted (when rates go down). 2. The Instalment (EMI) amount is reset (increased in case rates go up & reduced in case rates come down). 3.As a practice, the term of the home loan is extended since the self-employed customer, might have given PDC’s and it would be difficult to replace them on every rate change. However, in case of under construction properties, the Pre-EMI amount is increased by default.
In case the interest component exceeds 85% of the EMI amount at any time, it should be a warning to the customer. This will ensure that variation in interest rates does not cause any inconvenience.
Internal FRR is the benchmark reference rate. This is determined on the basis of market conditions and the cost of funds for the company. These changes depend on various external factors and economic conditions.
As per our re-pricing policy, home loan interest rates are reviewed every 2 months and a decision is taken whether to change the interest rates or keep that unchanged.
This is a bi-annual exercise that is yet another an industry first for any NBFC in the country. As a goodwill gesture and to maintain transparency with our valued, existing self-employed customers, we ensure through our pro-active downward re-pricing strategy, that none of our existing customers are more than 100 basic points over and above the last 3 months average sourcing rate. If customers are higher than 100 bps from our last 3 months average sourcing rate, we carry out downward re-pricing of the rate of interest for them. This brings them to maximum 100 bps above the last 3 months average sourcing rate.
Home Loan sanctioned for under construction property is disbursed in installments by us. These disbursements in installments are called part / subsequent disbursement. You will need to make an online request to Bajaj Finserv for the part disbursement.
The time taken by Bajaj Finserv depends on the category in which your property falls. We categorize every property into APF (Approved Project Facility) and Non APF. The time taken by the processing for part disbursement would be: 4 working days - If the property is part of Approved Project Facility and 7 working days - If the property is not part of Approved Project Facility.
You will need to submit online request for part disbursement to Bajaj Finserv, along with the following documents. 1. Scanned copy of demand letter from the builder. 2. Receipt of last payment made to the developer.
No, foreclosure of your loan will have no impact on your CIBIL score. Once the loan is foreclosed the same would be reported to CIBIL as ‘Closed’ and it would have no impact on your CIBIL Score.

To effectively manage your home loan EMI, a borrower should keep it less than 50% of their monthly income. This way customer can increase their EMIs when required with ease. Stepping up EMI helps to reduce loan tenure since higher EMI results in faster repayment of the loan.
Home Loan EMI (Equated Monthly Installment) is the monthly repayment that a borrower should make to repay the home loan amount as per the amortization schedule.
Loan amortization is the process of reducing the debt with regular payments over the loan period. A home loan amortization schedule is a table that provides details of the repayment amount, principal and interest component.
A home loan applicant should be above 21 years of age at the time of loan commencement and up to the age of 60 or superannuation, whichever is earlier at the time of maturity of the loan. You can check the loan amount you need to pay as EMI with the help of a Home Loan EMI Calculator.
