Since personal loans are unsecured, their interest rates tend to be higher than those for other loans. That, in turn, makes personal loan EMIs higher.

You can use online personal loan EMI calculator to find the EMI you will have to pay. This way you can budget and plan a proper repayment schedule even before you apply for the loan. The following are the inputs you will need to provide for the calculation:

  1. Principal amount: This is the loan amount that you are planning to borrow. The rate of interest is applied on the principal amount, and then divided into monthly EMIs according to the tenor of the loan.

  2. Interest rate: This is the rate of interest applied on the principal. For unsecured loans they tend to be high. They can also be fixed or floating. If they are floating the EMI may change at a later point in the tenor, but if they are fixed, EMIs too, remain unchanged.

  3. Loan tenor: The loan tenor is the time period to repay the loan. Most lenders offer flexible tenors, and those for personal loans usually range from 1-5 years. The longer the tenor the lower the EMI, and vice versa. However, longer tenors also usually mean a higher interest payout.

Online personal loan EMI calculators first calculate the interest to be applied on the loan and then the EMI itself. The formula used to calculate the EMI is as follows:

EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^N-1]

Here, P is the principal or the amount that is borrowed as a loan, R is the monthly rate of interest levied, N is the tenor of repayment.

As is evident from the formula above, it may not be for everyone to manually calculate the EMI. Therefore, using an online calculator makes things much easier. It will tell you your EMI within seconds, based on which you can assess your repayment ability, and know how much you can actually afford to borrow. Having a clear repayment plan before applying always improves your chances of approval.
