Choosing to repay a United Bank of India car loan using equated monthly installments is one of the most convenient options available to customers. An EMI or otherwise called as an equated monthly installment is the total amount that has to be repaid back by the borrower, after availing a UBI car loan. Customers have to make the repayment within a particular time period called loan tenure and the EMI amount is inclusive of the interest rate charged by UBI along with the principal amount. When the car loan tenure starts, customers have to pay a specific amount every month. Initially, the monthly installment would contain higher interest rate amounts and a small principal amount. After a certain period in the loan tenure, the interest rate amount starts reducing significantly, with more principal amount being added to the monthly installment.
The EMI for a United Bank of India car loan can be calculated as follows -
EMI (E) = [P x r x (1+r) ^n]/ [(1+r) ^n-1]
P = The Principal Loan Amount
R = The Interest rate charged per month. United Bank of India charges a floating interest rate of 10.40% for all types of applicants. This is calculated depending on the base rate, which is currently 9.65%.
N = Number of monthly installments i.e. the number of years opted for the repayment of loan.
For a principal amount of Rs. 1, 00,000 given at an interest rate of 10.40% and a loan tenure of one year, an estimate of the total sum of EMIs that has to be paid by the borrower is Rs. 1, 04, 815, out of which the interest will be around Rs. 4815.

Interest rates for a United Bank of India car loan might be offered based on various factors and also on the applicant’s financial profile. Some of the important factors affecting interest rates for a United Bank of India car loan have been listed below -
Income - A customer’s income plays a very important role in determining the interest rate for a car loan. If the applicant has an acceptable income, then he will be able to make a higher down payment amount, thereby getting a car loan deal at low interest rates. To improve the income criteria, customers can opt for a co-applicant, where the bank will consider the combined income of both the applicants.
Down Payment - Financial experts always suggest that customers should make higher down payments to lower the burden of repayments. Huge amounts will also help customers shorten their loan tenures and reduce the EMI amounts, thereby cutting the total cost of the car loan. Banks will definitely prefer customers who have paid a good lump sum and might offer very low interest rates for the short loan tenure.
Debts - As a general rule, customers should apply for any kind of loan with minimum liabilities and outstanding debts. The debt to income ratio is an important factor that banks consider while granting car loans. Any borrower should be able to comfortably repay the new car loan along with other liabilities and commitments.
Loan Tenure - When a car loan is availed, customers should always opt for shorter tenures. Longer tenures attract more interest rate charges. Since the tenure is short, the customer would have made a huge down payment amount and this ensures that lenders are forced to give the applicant the best deals with regards to interest rates.
Most banks approve car loans based on the credit score and credit history of an applicant. It is very important that every applicant presents a good score to get an affordable car loan deal. A good score is a reflection of the customer’s regular payment patterns and efficient money management capabilities. Having a high CIBIL score boosts the bank’s confidence in the customer and this might open various avenues for the borrower to save money. Lending institutions might not sanction car loans for applicants with bad scores and even if they do offer a loan package, it will be at high interest rates.
