A personal loan from Lakshmi Vilas Bank needs to be paid back in equated monthly installments (EMIs) and each EMI consists of a portion of the principal amount as well as the interest. As the maturity year draws closer, the principal portion gradually increases and simultaneously the interest portion decreases.
The method for calculating the EMI on a Personal Loan can be mentioned as follows -
E = P*r*[(1+r)^n/((1+r)^n-1)]
Here E - Monthly EMI, r - rate of interest per month, n - number of years.
For a ballpark figure of Rs. 1,00,000 at an interest rate of 14.7% with a loan tenure of 1 year, the first EMIs for the first year would be Rs. 45,058 out of which the interest will account for Rs. 5,159.
For example, a personal loan of Rs. 10,00,000 for a period of 2 years at an interest rate of 14.7% from Lakshmi Vilas Bank would have the following scenario for the EMI to be paid (starting from August 2015) -
|Year||Total Payment (INR)||Balance (INR)||Principal Portion (INR)||Interest Portion (INR)|
The total of all EMIs per year doesn’t vary much, while the ratios of the principal amount and interest amount keep increasing and decreasing as the loan proceeds towards maturity
