Housing Loan EMI Payments What is an EMI_WC

Typically, lenders request that borrowers start paying their EMIs from the month following the month in which the full loan amount was disbursed.

So, if your monthly EMI debit date was fixed on the 5th and your total Home Loan amount was disbursed on the 18th of the month, then your first EMI will be deducted on the 5th of the following month.

However, note that in scenarios when the Home Loan is disbursed in parts for an under-construction property, borrowers may be required to pay a pre-EMI. The pre-EMI comprises only the interest tallied on the principal amount and not a combination of both.

Borrowers are advised to keep up with their EMI payments to avoid defaulting on their Loans. This can be achieved by planning of time and employing the help of online tools, such as a Home Loan EMI Calculator.

Your final EMI amount is determined considering the following factors:

  • Your Home Loan Amount:Your Home Loan amount or the principal amount is the basis on which the EMI payments are decided, as one of the two components of the EMI is the principal amount. 
  • Your Home Loan Interest Rate: The rate of interest at which you borrow the Home Loan also factors into your EMI account, as the second component of the payment is the interest accrued on your principal amount.
  • Your Home Loan Repayment Tenor: How long it takes to repay the loan decides the size of the EMI; if you choose a short repayment tenor, you end up paying a higher EMI amount but save on interest outflow. On the other hand, a longer repayment tenor ensures small EMIs, but for a longer duration – increasing your total cost of borrowing. 

The final EMI amount is calculated based on all the factors listed above. Before you make your Home Loan application, You can use the Home Loan EMI Calculator to get a tentative idea of how much you may have to pay as an EMI.
