In the above table you can see that for the various Home Loan amounts that are taken at a lowest interest rate, the EMI varies as the tenure of the Home Loan changes at 15 years or 20 years or 30 years. The EMI is more when the duration of the loan is short and it is less when the loan period is more.

The EMI that is paid on a monthly basis includes the interest and principal component. Even though the EMI will remain constant every month, the proportion of the interest component and the principal repayment differs with each EMI.

The above table shows that the longer is the duration of the loan borrowed, the lower is the EMI payable every month, but the total interest outgo is higher in a long tenure Home Loan. For example, if you take a loan of 1 Lakh for a tenure of 30 years then the lowest EMI to be paid is 772 where you tend to pay the total interest of 1,78,086.

However, when you take a Home Loan of 1 Lakh from LIC Housing Finance at the lowest loan rate offered by the bank with a duration of 5 years then you will be paying a higher Home Loan EMI of 2,054 and an interest component of 23,244 which is way much lesser than the 30 year Home Loan. That's why it is better to go for a Home Loan with proper planning and calculations.

Tips to Decide the Right Amount of EMI

  • Work out the right loan amount you need to borrow: When you wish to buy a house of your own or even construct a house, the first thing that you need to do is to plan the right amount of loan that you will need from the bank. You can use the various tools that are available online which will help you to do the same and since a Home Loan is a long term loan, you need to plan an amount which is small to the extent possible so that it will not burden you from paying the EMIs as well. Also on the basis of the EMI that you will pay comfortably, you can decide the convenient tenure of Home Loan repayment for you.
  • Calculate LIC Housing Finance Home Loan eligibility: An individual can calculate the Home Loan eligibility by using the online calculator and then they can take an informed decision as to how much funds to borrow from the bank as per the requirements and the eligibility. The LIC Housing Finance offers a maximum LTV of up to 85% of the property value and expects the applicant to manage the remaining funds by themselves.
  • Review the current obligations: When you decide to take a Home Loan it is better that you evaluate your current expenses and any other monthly payments that are already running. Then further you can plan your finances such that you will not feel the financial crunch. This assessment will also help you to estimate the EMI that you can add to your monthly spending.
  • FOIR: LIC Housing Finance also estimates the fixed obligations to income ratio (FOIR) in order to find out the maximum EMI that an individual can pay on the basis of their current income and expenses. The proportion of the fixed income to the obligations provides the lender with the FOIR. Te minimum FOIR of the applicant should be 0.65 to avail the LIC Housing Finance Home Loan.

Change in the EMI with Change in Rate of Interest

  • Usually, the Home Loan EMI remains the same until the customer requests for a change in EMI and the same will be taken care after the approval from the bank which is subject to some eligibility conditions.
  • When the floating interest rate on the Home Loan increases, the LIC Housing Finance will keep the EMI stable but it will increase the loan tenure. When the interest rates increase to an extent that the revised Home Loan tenure is higher than the maximum permissible period by the LIC Housing Finance, then it may increase the monthly EMI amount.
  • When partly disbursed Home Loans are availed under tranched EMI offer, then the Home Loan EMI will be higher with every disbursement.

Change in the EMI on Prepayment

  • The LIC Housing Finance permits a prepayment of the loan at zero charges in case of floating interest rate housing loans.
  • In the case of prepayment, the outstanding balance of the Home Loan decreases. Here, you can choose to either keep the EMI constant or reduce the loan period or you can reduce the EMI and keep the loan period stable. It is better to keep the EMI same and reduce the duration of the Home Loan as you pay less interest to the bank.

Before taking any sort of Home Loan, it is always better to calculate the EMI which you can pay comfortably. There are many advantages of calculating the LIC Housing Finance EMI which are as below:
