## How to Calculate Interest on Home Loan?

To calculate interest on the home loan, you’ll have to evaluate various factors which help you calculate the interest amount on the home loan calculator.

The following are the factors that affect the Interest rate amount-

- Loan amount
- Tenure
- Interest rates

#### The formula for Calculating the Home Loan Interest Rate

The following is the formula for calculating the home loan interest rate-

P x R x (1+R)^N / [(1+R)^N-1], where-

P = Principal loan amount

N = Loan tenure in months

R = Monthly interest rate

R = Annual Rate of interest/12/100

#### Example-

Let’s say, A bank is offering you a loan of Rs.50 Lakhs for a 9.2% interest rate for 10 years. The calculation of the home loan is as follows-

When we imply the above data into the formula for finding the home loan EMI, i.e., 50,00,000 x 9.2% x (1+9.2)^10/(1+9.2)^10-1

The monthly EMI is calculated as Rs.63,880/-per month which you must pay for 10 years to the bank.

## Types of Interest rates

There are two types of interest rates that a bank or financial institution provides you to choose from for getting the loan, which are explained as follows-

### Fixed Interest Rate

Fixed Interest rates are those rates that are fixed in nature which are predefined and do not change during the tenure of the loan.

The entire structuring of this interest rate is fixed and no alteration can be done during the tenure which helps in determining the cost during the entire period.

Determining the fixed cost that you’ll have to bear helps in financial planning and no matter what the financial condition of the economy would be, you’ll have a fixed cost to bear. Due to this reason, the fixed interest rates are 1-2% higher than the floating interest rates.

### Floating Interest Rate

Floating Interest rates are those that may vary from time to time and it highly depends on the RBI’s base rate.

RBI is the central bank of India which develops the monetary policy to aid the country in maintaining economic advancement.

To manage that RBI, lends the money itself to the banks so that the banks can further lend that money to the end users.

Floating interest rate charges with base rate + the interest decided by the bank. The base rate is the variable element that changes from time to time.

RBI decides the base rate depending on various factors like economic performance, inflation rate, the money supply in the market, etc.

## Which one to choose: Fixed Interest Rate or Floating Interest Rate?

Fixed Interest rates are a preferred choice of many as the fixed interest rate provides the end user with an assurance that whatever the market condition is, the fixed cost of the loan will not change.

On contrary, floating interest rate changes from time to time which might enforce pressure on your cash flow from time to time.

In general, if the loan amount is big and the payment tenure is also long then you should always go for a fixed interest rate and if the tenure is small and the loan amount is moderate to low then you can choose a floating interest rate.

In India, the inflation rate is generally 3-4% which keeps the economy growing well, however, during times of economic difficulties like COVID or depression, the inflation rate increase which affects the floating interest rates.

The above mention practice will help you in playing safe during any economic difficulty as generally, the economic performance of a country can be anticipated for a year or two in advance, and keeping the amount lower will not adversely affect your cash flow during the time of economic difficulty.
