The formula for interest calculation

EMI is calculated using the below formula: -

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

Here,

P – Principal loan amount

R - Rate of interest (monthly)

N – Tenure (months)

For instance, Riya took a personal loan of Rs. 1,00,000 at an interest rate of 15% p.a. for a tenure of 12 months. Here, Riya’s annual interest payable will be around Rs. 8,310, and her monthly EMI will be around Rs. 9,026.

Types of interest rates

The two primary categories of interest rates are simple interest rates and compound interest rates. Simple interest is a straightforward calculation where interest is calculated solely on the principal amount. Compound interest, on the other hand, takes into account both the principal and any accumulated interest, resulting in interest being earned on the initial amount as well as on the previously earned interest.
