    How to Calculate Interest Rate on my Punjab National Bank Car Loan

    Customers can repay their loans through Equated Monthly Installments or EMIs. After purchasing the car through Punjab National Bank Car loan, the loan amount that needs to be paid back can be done monthly through easy installments over a period of time determined by the bank. EMIs consist of both the principal amount borrowed along with the interest amount charged, which is again decided by the bank. With the progress in the loan tenure, the principal amount to be paid increases while the interest amount reduces. Customers can calculate the amount of EMI that they will need to pay every month by using the formula given below -

    E = P*r*[(1+r)^n/((1+r)^n-1)]

    Where E is the Monthly EMI, P stands for principal amount, r is the rate of interest per month, n refers to the number of years.

    For an amount of Rs. 1,00,000 at an interest rate of 10.60% with a loan tenure of 1 year, the EMI calculated on an arrear basis would total up to approximately Rs. 8,820 wherein the total amount to be paid would be Rs. 1,05,834.

    For example, the table given below illustrates the amortization table for a car loan of Rs. 9,00,000 for a period of 3 years at an interest rate of 10.60% from Punjab National Bank (starting from August 2015).

    Year Total Payment Balance Principal Portion Interest Portion
    2015 Rs. 87,884 Rs. 8,35,399 Rs. 64,601 Rs. 23,283
    2016 Rs. 3,51,536 Rs. 5,59,255 Rs. 2,76,144 Rs. 75,392
    2017 Rs. 3,51,536 Rs. 2,52,375 Rs. 3,06,880 Rs. 44,656
    2018 Rs. 2,63,652 0 Rs. 2,52,375 Rs. 11,277

    The amount of principal that is paid increases with the loan repayment period and the interest rate decreases until the loan is repaid completely.

    Factors affecting Punjab National Bank Car Loan Interest Rates

    Interest rates are the primary consideration for customers looking to avail car loans. Lower interest rates are one of the most salient features of any car loan scheme. There are numerous factors that have an impact on the interest rates for a Punjab National Bank car loan. Some of these are listed below.

    • The minimum net income stipulated by the bank is Rs. 20,000 per month. In order to meet this requirement, customers can also include the salary of their spouse or children to theirs. This requirement is mandated so that banks are assured of the customer’s ability to repay their loan. If customers do not meet this requirement then their loan might get rejected, if not the rate of interest charged will be very high.
    • Loan Tenure - Banks offer tenures ranging generally from 12 months to 84 months, however tenures may also be less or more. Longer tenures are opted by most as the EMI amount to be paid each month is less, but this also results in the customer paying a lot more in interest amount. Longer tenures are also sometimes seen to be financially risky by the banks. Hence shorter tenures are advised.
    • Debt-to-income-ratio - Customers who have previously availed loans or are currently in the process of repaying other loans are believed to constitute a higher financial risk by the bank. This is because the customer’s income is already being used to repay other loans and if these repayments are not made on time then there is a chance that banks would not be very eager to provide new loans to them.
    • CIBIL Scores - Provided by the Credit Information Bureau of India Limited, these scores summarize a person’s prior debts, payments and loans and thereby determines the eligibility of the customer. Banks and financial institutions prefer providing loans to those who have a good CIBIL score.
    • A previously established relationship with the bank is an added benefit. Punjab National Bank offers additional concessions and benefits for those who already have a working relationship with the bank.

    How CIBIL scores affect Punjab National Car Loan Interest rates

    Every debt, payment, loan repayment and other finance history is stored, summarized and converted to a score known as the CIBIL TransUnion Score. This information is provided by Credit Information Bureau India Limited or CIBIL. This 3 digit number ranging from 300 to 900 is considered as an important determining factor by banks or financial institutions before providing a loan. These institutions provide loans more easily to those who are seen to constitute a lower risk financially. If a customer has a good CIBIL Score, generally above 750, then he/she automatically receives a better loan offer with lower interest rates as banks remain confident of the person’s ability to repay. On the other hand, if a customer has a low score then banks are automatically more wary of providing them with loans as there is a reduced chance of their repaying loans on time with the interest amount. Hence, potential customers are advised to have a good CIBIL score so as to avail loans a lot more easily.

      "Good experience"
      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      One of my colleague recommended PNB to me. I went directly to the nearest branch of PNB and submitted all the required documents for a car loan. It took around 10 to 15 days for disbursing my loan. PNB is much better than private banks. Rate of interest & charges are lesser than private banks.
