Equated Monthly Instalments (EMI) Demystified

The one thing that strikes the minds of Gen-X and Millennials whenever they need to make a huge purchase is those three-word saviors — EMI. Yes, in the backdrop of rising prices and rising inflation, EMI is a savior to many of those who are entirely dependent on salaries.

We can hardly find a thing that cannot be purchased on EMIs nowadays. Even online shoppers are enjoying the benefits of EMI and bringing home their dream purchases as and when they are needed. Not just homes — laptops, television sets, cars, bikes, home appliances — almost any item that is beyond affordable price are falling into EMI category. Retailers, too, are luring customers with tags such ‘zero cost EMI’,’ EMI option available’,’Buy now, Pay later’, etc.

This post lets you understand in detail what EMI means, its components and how it works and such concepts involved.

EMI- Defined

Merely stating, an EMI is a fixed amount that a customer agrees to pay to the lender or the seller at a fixed date every month, for the purchase made, till the loan is fully repaid.

You can pay EMIs through the following methods:

What makes an EMI?

When you pay an EMI, you are paying two components together:

Suppose that your loan is for a tenure of ten years and you pay for EMI for the ten whole years. Then during the first years, for around 6-7 years you keeping paying more of interest and less of principal. In the later years, the actual principal amount keeps decreasing.

EMI covers more of interest amount in the earlier years and principal amount in the later years.

How is EMI calculated?

EMI is calculated in two ways basically:

I have found a change in my EMI being debited. Why did this happen?

Yes, it can happen. You would have opted for a floating rate of interest. There are two types of EMI interest rate:

  1. Fixed rate of interest, where the rate of interest in fixed throughout the tenure of the loan.
  2. Floating rate of interest, where the rate of interest keeps changing as per the changes made by the lender.
Remember that you can always make an option and request your bank to either change or not to change the rate of interest.

Is there any other way where EMI will change?

Yes. There is. When you prepay the loan in a lump sum before the tenure of the loan, your principal goes down, hence the EMI comes down. I think the saving amount in the bank is better than prepaying my EMI based loan. It is always suggested to prepay the EMI based loan when you have lump sum amount in hand (assuming you have no other immediate needs) because this will bring down the cost of EMI that you pay every month.

Is progressive EMI beneficial?

Yes. It is. A progressive EMI is the type of EMI wherein, EMI amount increases after a designated number of months. This way you pay larger EMIs later on and your loan clear up faster. This is commonly becoming a preferred option for most millennials who start their earning lower initially and then earn more later on. Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving. – Warren Buffet

What are the tips to cut down EMIs?

What are the main factors that an EMI of a loan is dependent on?

Majorly, three factors decide the amount of EMI you pay.

  1. Loan Amount:

    Higher loan amount, higher EMI.
  2. The rate of Interest:

    Higher rate of interest, higher EMI.
  3. Tenure:

    Longer the tenure, lower the EMI. (The key here is with longer EMI you finally end up paying more interest and thus more amount that you have borrowed.)
