The formula used by personal loan EMI Calculator

The formula used to measure EMIs for personal loans is determined by the interest calculation method selected by the bank, whether the bank uses the flat rate method or the balance reduction method. The two EMI measurement methods are discussed below: 

1. Flat Rate Method: The EMI remains the same during the loan term when the flat rate method of interest calculation is used. This is because interest is charged on the entire principal amount availed by the borrower. . The formula for  calculating EMI according to this method is: 

  • Flat interest rate Method  = (Main + Interest)/ Months of Loan Tenure 
  • For eg, Mr. X takes a loan of Rs. 5 lakh for 12 months at a flat rate of interest of 20 percent. 
  • Interest for year 1 = 20% of principal per annum = 20% of Rs. 5 lakh = Rs. 1 lakh 
  • Total interest due throughout the loan = Rs. 1 lakh 
  • EMI payouts per month for Mr. X= (Rs. 5 lakh + Rs. 1 lakh)/12 = Rs. 50,000

2. Reducing interest rate method: As interest is calculated on the reducing balance, the interest portion of the EMI paid  reduces over the loan tenure. This is because the interest is paid only on the principal amount of the unpaid loan (which decreases as the loan is paid off). This is a contrast to the flat interest rate calculation.

The declining interest  rate method will also assist you in saving on the overall interest payable. The formula for calculating EMI, as per this procedure, is: 

EMI with Balance System Reduction = [P x (R/100) x {1+(R/100)}^N]/[{1+(R/100)}^(N-1)]]{1+(R/100)}^(N-1)] 

Where, 

  • P refers to the principal/loan amount; 
  • R refers to the monthly interest rate (i.e. the annual interest rate)/12; 
  • N refers to the tenure for repayment of the loan in months.
  • For example, Mr. Y takes a loan of Rs. 5 lakhs at a 20 percent p.a. lower balance interest rate. For a 12 months duration. 
  • Monthly rate of interest = Annual interest rate/ 12 = 20/12 = 1.67 percent per month 
  • EMI monthly payout for Mr. Y= [5000000 x 0.0167 x (1+0.0167)^12]/(1+0.0167)^(12-1)] = Rs. 46,3177 x (1+0.0167)^12]/(1+0.0167)^(12-1)]

Factors Impacting UCO Bank Personal Loan EMI

Some main factors that impact personal loan EMIs from UCO Bank are discussed below:

  • Loan amount: The amount of money you borrow from the lender is referred to as the loan amount or principal of the loan. A higher loan amount means higher EMIs. 
  • Loan Tenure: It is the period for which the repayment of the loan will be made. Longer-term loans typically result in lower EMI payouts. However, you may need to pay higher interest over the loan tenure.
  • Interest rate: It is the interest rate paid on the amount of the loan by the  borrower. A higher interest rate usually results in a higher EMI payout.
  • Interest Calculation Process: The method used to calculate personal loan EMIs often influences the interest payable. Most frequently, EMIs calculated using the flat rate method are higher than EMIs calculated using reducing balance method.
