EMI formula

Question: What is the formula to be applied to calculate the EMI of housing loan for different rests?

K.R. Narasimhan Chennai

Our panelist, T. M. Aaditiyaa, Chartered Accountant, replies:

The formula for calculation of EMI given the loan, term and interest rate is:

EMI = (p*r) (1+r)^n

___________

(1+r)^n - 1

p = principal (amount of loan), r = rate of interest per instalment period, i.e., if interest is 12% p.a. r = 1, n = no. of instalments in the tenure, ^ denotes whole to the power. Alternatively, the reader can use `Calculate EMI function' in EXCEL spread sheet.
