Home loan interest rates and EMI in banks – August 2020

When you take a home loan for your dream home, you end up paying an interest and the loan amount. The interest is calculated by an interest rate charged on the loan amount. You repay the loan amount and interest in equal monthly installments. Home loan interest rates can be floating and fixed depending on the banks. They are charged according to the loan amount.

EMI depends on the following factors:-

  • Higher the loan amount, higher is the EMI.
  • Lower the home loan interest rates, lower the EMI
  • The maximum tenure of a home loan is 30 years. Longer the tenure of repayment of the loan and interest amount, lower the EMI.

You can calculate your home loan EMI using the following mathematical formula:

[P * r * {(1+r)^n}] / [{(1+r)^n} – 1]. Here P = loan amount, r = interest rate, n= loan tenure.

Banks and NBFCs charge an interest rate which keeps fluctuating over time. The Reserve Bank of India sets the interest rate charged by different banks. With COVID19, interest rates have been slashed to promote house purchases. Here is an approximation of the interest rates to help you with your loan application.
