What is an Education Loan EMI?

The Education Loan Equated Monthly Instalment or EMIs are made up of the principal and the interest portions. It is the total amount you pay each month until you repay the entire education loan. The EMIs are generally fixed across the complete tenure of the education loan. In the starting years of your education loan, a major portion of your repayment goes towards the interest portion of the education loan. As you repay the education loan, a higher portion gets adjusted towards the principal component of the education loan. The cost of education is rising and you may not have the funds to provide quality education for your children. You might even aspire to send them abroad for higher studies, which would cost a lot of money. You can avail of an education loan from a bank or an NBFC and give your children a quality education, either in India or abroad. You don’t need to pay the EMIs on your education loan, right from the first month. It is payable even after you complete the educational course. The lender would cover the common expenses like a caution deposit, lodging fees, travel expenses, and even the purchase of a laptop or books. Banks even offer you a collateral-free education loan up to Rs 4 lakh.

How does Education Loan EMI Calculators work?

You can calculate your education loan EMI amount with the help of the mathematical formula: EMI amount = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^N-1] where P, R, and N are the variables. This also means that the EMI value will change each time you change any of the three variables. ‘P’ stands for the Principal Amount. It is the original loan amount given to you by the bank on which the interest will be calculated. ‘R’ stands for the Rate of Interest set by the bank. N is the Number of Years given to you for the repayment of the loan. As EMIs are paid each month, the duration is calculated in the number of months. So, if you take an education loan of Rs 10 lakh with an average interest rate of 12%, for 2 years the EMI will be: P = 10 lakh, R = 12/100/12 (You convert to months), N = 2 years or 24 months EMI = [10,00,000 x 12/100/12 x (1+12/100/12)^24] / [(1+12/100/12)^24-1] EMI = Rs 47,073.
