Types of personal loan interest rates

Personal loans come with two types of rates of interest: Fixed interest rate and floating interest rate.

  1. Fixed interest rate

    As the name suggests, the interest rate remains the same throughout the loan tenor. Thus, the loan EMIs will also remain constant.
  2. Floating interest rate

    A floating, adjustable, or variable interest rate is linked to an internal benchmark of a financial institution. Changes to this benchmark will affect the rates. Hence, floating rates vary throughout the loan tenor.

    Both of these rates have advantages and disadvantages. Fixed rates keep EMIs constant, which helps in budgeting. On the other hand, floating rates go up or come down along with the internal benchmark rate.
     

    Methods for Interest Calculation on Personal Loan
     

    Personal loan interest rates are calculated in two ways—flat rate and reducing balance interest rate:

    1. Flat rate method

      In this method, the applicable rate of interest is charged on the entire principal throughout the tenor.
       
    2. Reducing balance method

      In the diminishing balance or reducing balance method, the applicable rate of interest is chargeable on the outstanding principal after each EMI is paid off. Thus, the interest is calculated every month on the loan balance. Borrowers pay lower interest on the loan compared to the flat rate method.

Interest rate calculation formula
 

The interest rate for a personal loan through the flat rate method and the reducing balance method is calculated using the following formula:

  1. Flat rate method
    The rate of interest is chargeable on the entire loan principal.

    The formula for this method is –

    EMI = (principal + total interest payable) / loan tenor in months

    Wherein, total interest payable = P x r x n/100

  2. Reducing balance method
    The rate of interest is charged on the outstanding principal after the payment of each EMI.

    The formula to calculate this is –

    EMI = [P x r x (1 + r) ^n] / [(1 + r) ^(n-1)]

    Here, 'P' is the loan amount or principal, 'r' is the rate of interest, and 'n' is the loan tenor in months.

Personal loan processing fees and interest rates FAQs

How to calculate the personal loan interest rate?

When you apply for a personal loan, you have to repay the lender the principal as well as the interest amount. However, it might not be easy to manually estimate how much your payable personal loan amount will be.

To do that, you can check out the Personal Loan EMI Calculator on the Bajaj Finserv website.

Once you select the desired loan amount, tenor and applicable interest rate, the calculator will suggest an EMI amount. It will also show you the exact personal loan interest amount.

What are the factors that affect personal loan interest rates?

  • Credit score – The minimum credit score to avail of a personal loan is 750. Applicants who hold a high credit score are more creditworthy and can get lower interest rates.
     
  • Occupation - Financial institutions may offer different interest rates to salaried and self-employed applicants. The former may be at times considered less risky from the perspective of lending.
     
  • Income – An applicant with a higher income may receive a lower rate of interest owing to reduced chances of default.
     
  • Age – Individuals of a lower age can receive more affordable loan rates than those nearing retirement. Young applicants have more years of service left and are deemed less risky.
     
  • Place of employment – Those employed in a renowned organisation may be liable to receive lower rates.
     
  • Association with the lender – Existing customers of a financial institution may also receive lower loan rates.

What is the lowest interest rate available on a personal loan?

The interest rate depends on the type of applicant and their credit score (750 or higher), income, age, relationship with the financial institution, existing debts and several other factors. Customers who have a favourable background and good credit history could receive lower interest rates.

What is the maximum personal loan repayment tenor at Bajaj Finserv?

The maximum personal loan repayment tenor that you can opt for is 60 months (5 years).

What are reducing interest rates on personal loans?

A diminishing or reducing interest rate applies to the outstanding loan balance after the payment of each EMI. This process of calculating the interest is known as the reducing balance method.

The fixed-rate method is an alternative process, where the rate of interest is chargeable on the entire loan amount or principal throughout the tenor.

What is the processing fee for personal loans?

To avail of a personal loan, you need to pay a processing fee. The processing charge at Bajaj Finserv is up to 4.13% of the total loan amount.

Bajaj Finserv lets you borrow up to Rs. 25 lakh, which can be repaid over a flexible tenor. It comes with low personal loan interest rates that can be negotiated based on your CIBIL score and repayment history.

What is the pre-closure charge for personal loans?

The pre-closure charges are 4%, along with applicable taxes, on the principal outstanding. The time period is more than 1 month from the date of disbursal of the loan.

Personal loan foreclosures mean the closing of the loan account before the end of the tenor. Many borrowers like to do that to keep away the entire obligation of the loan. But you need to pay personal loan pre-closure charges to the lender for that.

What are the charges for personal loans?

The personal loan charges at Bajaj Finserv include a processing fee, which is up to 4.13% of the total availed amount.

There are no charges on downloading e-statements via our customer portal, Experia. However, you need to pay Rs.50 + taxes if you wish to get the physical copies.

What is repo rate and how does it affect personal loans?

Repo rate is the rate at which the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lends money to commercial banks. A cut in repo rate usually translates to lower borrowing costs such as interest rates and EMIs for individuals and banks.

Repo rate affects the interest rate on personal loans only if you opt for a floating interest rate. Personal loans offered at fixed interest rates don't get affected by a cut in the repo rate.
