A systematic breakdown of the entire loan repayment process is provided by an amortization table, indicating the variation between principal and interest during a particular tenure. The principal amount reduces after each EMI payment and it is this reduced principal which is used to calculate interest for the next term.
Example: Corporation Bank grants a personal loan worth Rs 1 lakh to Miss Priya at an interest rate of 13.75% per annum. The tenure of this loan is 5 years, with the EMI coming up to Rs 2,314 per month. The table below highlights the loan repayment timeline which Miss Priya would need to consult in order to clear the loan.

Corporation Bank relies on the CIBIL score of an applicant to gauge his/her loan repayment capacity and credit history. A good CIBIL score is an indication of good credit history, enhancing the chances of an applicant getting a personal loan approved at favourable interest rates. Applicants with low CIBIL scores might be viewed as risky propositions and Corporation Bank could choose to increase their interest rate accordingly.
