What is an EMI?
The Equated Monthly Instalment (or EMI) consists of the principal portion of the loan amount and the interest. Therefore, EMI = principal amount + interest paid on the personal loan. The EMI, usually, remains fixed for the entire
tenure of your loan, and it is to be repaid over the tenure of the loan on a monthly basis.
Mathematically, EMI is calculated as under:
P x R x (1+R)^N / [(1+R)^N-1]
P = Principal amount of the loan
R = Rate of interest
N = Number of monthly instalments.
So, say you are applying for a personal loan from Axis Bank, amounting to Rs 2,00,000 at a rate of interest of 15.5% p.a. and your loan tenure is 2 years, your EMI will be calculated as under:
EMI = 200000* 0.0129 * (1+ 0.0129)^24 = Rs 9,745 / [(1+ 0.0129)^24 ]-1
The rate of interest (R) on your loan is calculated monthly i.e. (R= Annual rate of interest/12/100). For instance, if R = 15.5% per annum, then R= 15.5/12/100 = 0.0129.

Remember, the interest rate and your loan tenure are the vital deciding factors for your loan EMI. Higher the interest rate on the loan, higher will be your EMI and vice-versa. Similarly, a shorter loan tenure increases your EMI
and vice versa.

Do note that during the initial months of the loan tenure, you pay more towards interest, and gradually, as you repay the loan, a higher portion is adjusted towards the principal component. This is because; EMIs are computed on

Your EMIs are due on a fixed date every month, which is notified when the loan is disbursed.
