    How to Calculate Interest Rate on my SBM Car Loan

    EMI calculators are handy tools that one can use when applying for a loan. To determine your EMIs and interest payable on your SBM car loan, you can use the EMI calculators available online. Before you apply for a State Bank of Mysore car loan, you can check your eligibility and if the loan is affordable on BankBazaar.com. The following steps will help guide you through the EMI calculator.

    • Visit BankBazaar.com. You don’t need an account to use the calculator.
    • Click on the menu tab on the top righthand corner of the homepage.
    • Select “Finance tools” and click on the EMI Calculator.
    • Input your details of the loan such as principal, tenure, interest rate and processing charges.
    • When you hit “Calculate”, your results will be generated immediately.
    • You can view the details of your loan as well as a comprehensive amortization schedule which provides you with the monthly balance and breakdown of each EMI.

    Alternatively, if you wish to calculate your SBM EMI manually, you can use the formula below:

    (Principal) X (Interest rate per month) X (1+Interest rate per month) to the power of loan tenure

    [(1+Interest rate per month) to the power of loan tenure – 1]

    In short, the formula used is E = P*r*[(1+r)^n/(1+r)^n-1)]

    E = EMI

    P = Principal amount

    R = Rate of interest per month

    N = Number of years

    For example, if you take a car loan from State Bank of Mysore and it is sanctioned in October 2015, the following will be your loan details, assuming a loan quantum of Rs. 5 lakhs for a period of 5 years at the campaign interest rate of 9.95% p.a:

    EMI = Rs. 10,611

    Interest payable = Rs. 1,36,674

    Processing charges = Rs. 1,000

    Total amount payable = Rs. 6,37,674

    Factors affecting State Bank of Mysore Car Loan Interest Rates

    Loan tenure - The tenure of your loan will greatly determine your interest rate. The bank may deem a higher rate of interest to be fit for a short loan tenure as the total interest you pay maybe lesser. Whereas, with a longer tenure, the total interest payable at the end will be much higher. So banks would offer a lower interest rate that will be charged for a longer period of time.

    Customer relationship - Banks are happier to loan money to those who hold a salary account with the bank. If your salary is being credited to State Bank of Mysore, they may have special offers and interest rates on car loans for you. If you maintain a high-value savings or current account as well, the average quarterly balance you maintain with the bank will also be high. This will be more favourable towards interest rates on your SBM car loan. Also if you have taken loans from State Bank of Mysore before and maintained good repayment behaviour, the bank will keep a record of that and know that you are a credible customer.

    Credit score - CIBIL keeps a record of all credit history in India. Banks report customer behaviour and patterns regularly to CIBIL. The Bureau keeps a track of it and determines your credit score based on your repayment history, defaults, on-time payments, credit card spending patterns and so on. A good score will directly translate to you being a creditworthy customer. Banks would be happy to approve your loan and you, in turn, can request for better terms and interest rates. A lower score, however, would make your loan process tougher, require more documentation and may result in higher interest rates.

    Car model - In the event that you are unable to repay the loan, the banks will have to seize and sell the vehicle to recover the outstanding loan amount and interest. Different car models in each segment fetch different resale prices. Some car models depreciate faster than others. These cars will fetch a much lower price when sold as a pre-owned car, therefore banks will be able to recover a smaller amount. This may cause them to increase the interest rates when they are aware that the model’s value reduces significantly as time goes by. Banks also determine interest rates based on your choice of car segment such as sedans, hatchbacks, premiums, MUVs and SUVs.

    Age of the car - In the case of pre-owned cars, the age of the vehicle factors into interest rates on your car loan. Interest rates on used car loans are generally much higher than if you choose to buy a new car. State Bank of Mysore offers car loans for used vehicles that are not more than 5 years old. For cars below 3 years old, the interest rate can be as low as 16.15% p.a. But for cars that are 3 to 5 years old, the interest rate is higher at 16.90% p.a. The resale value of the car will depreciate with age, therefore the rates of interest will be higher.

    How CIBIL scores affect State Bank of Mysore Car Loan Interest rates

    CIBIL is the Credit Information Bureau of India Limited which plays a significant role in the credit market in India. When a person takes out a loan or a credit card, they are automatically inducted into the CIBIL record when banks report their behaviour. Both good and negative behaviour goes on record. Reports are sent regularly by your bank in accordance to methods and guidelines set out by the board. So if you were to default on an EMI payment after being notified and warned, the bank would report you to CIBIL. This will have an impact on your score and result in a low CIBIL score. On the other hand, timely repayments and good spending patterns, or paying your credit card bill in full, will have a positive impact on your credit score. When you have a good credit score, you have a higher standing with banks. You can request for better interest rates and other terms on your car loan. When you have a low score, banks will be reluctant to give you a loan because they will not be able to put their trust in you to repay the loan in a timely manner. Banks may reject your loan application completely, or may impose stricter rules and higher interest rates on your loan.
