The above table gives a clear idea of the importance of the Home Loan tenure. The EMI amount increases or decreases as per the Home Loan tenure. The longer the loan tenure, the lower your EMI will be even if the interest rate is the same. So if you apply for a Home Loan for a duration of 30 years, your monthly EMI will be less but your overall interest outgo will be more. But if you apply for the Home Loan for a duration of 15 years the EMI amount will be high but the interest outgo will reduce. Thus, it is very important to carefully choose the right Home Loan tenure to meet your requirements.

The EMI is made of principal component and an interest component. With every EMI the borrower pays the principal amount gets reduced even if the EMI is constant. The proportion of principal and interest component changes with every EMI. The principal repayment increases and interest component reduces with the payment of each EMI against the Home Loan.
