Basically, when you go for a loan for buying a home or car, different banks provide their different catalogue. You have to pick one of them. Hence, have a look here to know the simple EMI formula

### What is EMI?

EMI full form stands for Equated Monthly Instalment. When you borrow a loan from any financial institution, you have to agree to repay it in a number of instalments. And each instalment consists of a portion of the principal as well as the interest. Hence, over a period of years, you will pay off the complete loan with interest.

### How to calculate EMI?

in the above EMI formula,

E is EMI
P is Principal Loan Amount
r is the rate of interest calculated on a monthly basis.
(i.e., r = Rate of Annual interest/12/100. If the rate of interest is 9% per annum, then r = 9/12/100=0.0075)
n is loan term /tenure/duration in number of months

For example, if you borrow ₹20,00,000 for your home loan at 9% annual interest for a period of 15 years (i.e., 180 months), then EMI = ₹20,00,000 * 0.0075 * (1 + 0.0075)^180 / ((1 + 0.0075)^180 - 1) = ₹20,285. i.e., you will have to pay ₹20,285 for 180 months to repay the entire loan amount. The total amount payable will be ₹20,285 * 180 = ₹36,51,360 that includes ₹16,51,360 as interest toward the loan.
