    • Instant and accurate results of the EMI calculations will be displayed in the form of an amortisation table. The table represents the periodic car loan repayment schedule.


    Depending on the results, the car loan amount or loan tenure can be adjusted. It is advisable to maintain a low debt-to-income ratio wherein one’s EMI payments don’t exceed more than 50% of his or her income. A high debt-to-income ratio can result in skipped or delayed EMI payments. As the car serves as collateral, if the borrower defaults on his/her car loan, the bank has the right to repossess the car and put it up for auction to make up for the outstanding dues. Banks allow borrowers to prepay a part or whole of the loan amount after 6 to 12 EMI payments. Car loan EMI calculations can help decide whether it is wise to make part or full prepayment.
