The above table helps you to understand that EMI differs with the difference in the amount borrowed from HDFC as per the loan tenure. The lower the loan tenure the higher will be your EMI amount. For a lower EMI amount, an applicant must apply for a longer tenure.

An EMI is made up of interest component a well as principal component. Even if the EMI amount remains same throughout the loan tenure the ratio of interest component and principal component keeps on changing with payment of principal component each month.

Tips to Decide the Right Amount of EMI

This will give you a clear understanding of the funds available with you and will help you to plan your monthly budget accordingly. It is always recommended to minimise the Home Loan amount as much as possible as it is a long-term loan. You can also opt for short tenure Home Loans to reduce the overall outgo of the interest.
  • Know all your current obligations: A complete evaluation of monthly expenses and income is necessary to derive the Home Loan amount. All the obligations such as any current EMI should be taken into consideration while applying for the loan. This will give you a clear idea of the EMI that you will be comfortable to pay for your loan.
  • Calculate the HDFC Home Loan eligibility before applying: The eligibility of a Home Loan applicant is determined based on their repayment capacity and the monthly income. HDFC provides Home Loan LTV of up to 90%. You have to arrange for the remaining amount yourself. If the margin payment is higher than the available funds, the applicant can apply for higher LTV loans. However, the higher LTV loans come at higher interest rates. Thereby, increasing your monthly EMI amount considerably.
  • FOIR: Based on FOIR (Fixed Obligation to Income Ratio) HDFC will estimate the maximum EMI amount an applicant can afford to pay, taking into consideration their monthly expenses. All the other obligations such as EMI on past or current loans are taken into account while determining the FOIR. The proportion of fixed obligation to a monthly income of an applicant gives FOIR. The minimum FOIR of 0.65 is must to be eligible for the Home Loan at HDFC.
