About Housing Loan Amortization Schedule

Home loan borrowers repay the credits availed through pre-fixed monthly instalments or EMIs. Each EMI remains the same, but the principal and interest components of each instalment keep changing over the repayment tenor. This underlying change depends on the home loan amortization schedule.

What is Loan Amortization Schedule?

Home loan amortization refers to the breakup of interest and principal components in each EMI. For any term loan, the interest component remains highest in the initial EMIs and keeps decreasing over tenor. The principal component increases as one’s loan tenor progress. Due to this balance between these two components, the EMI amount does not vary.

Individuals can find this schedule on their loan-related paperwork. It outlines the entire repayment schedule, along with the division of principal repayment and interest components.

Generally, a home loan amortization schedule is represented in the form of a table. Bajaj Housing Finance customers can check various pieces of information about their existing housing credit on such a table. These include:

  • Number of instalments: Each EMI would have a corresponding number against it. Borrowers can use this number to track their instalments alongside the interest and principal component for that month.
  • Due date: This is the date of each month within which one must pay the EMI to avoid penalties or late payment charges.
  • Outstanding principal: A housing loan amortization schedule also lists the principal amount outstanding against each month during the loan repayment tenor.
  • Closing principal: After paying each month’s EMI, the remaining outstanding principal amount is given in this column.
  • Interest component: The interest paid through each EMI is shown on this home loan amortization schedule.
  • Principal component: The amount from each EMI that goes toward repaying the principal outstanding is known as the principal component of home loan instalment.
