# Car Loan EMI Calculator

Having a car in today’s times is no more a luxury unlike how it used to be, a few decades ago. Owning a car has now become a necessity that each one of us must have. Buying a car is a substantial investment in itself. Hence, it becomes vital to borrow a car loan while buying a car.

However, it must be noted that the principal amount on a car loan is not generally very high, due to which, there is a relatively shorter time duration for the repayment of the borrowed amount. Repayment of the car loan amount within the pre-decided tenure may even lead to forcible taking away of your vehicle. Hence, you must have a fair idea of your EMIs on the car loan. You must also ensure that your EMI equates the amount that you will be able to pay every month, apart from your regular monthly expenses. Paytm’s car loan EMI calculator helps you do this, within seconds!

## Understanding Car Loans

Before borrowing a car loan, you must note the following points-

- It is important for the borrower to ensure that he/she is eligible for the loan to ensure that the loan application does not get rejected
- Before borrowing the loan, one must have a fair idea of the amount that he/she will be able to repay. While doing so, it is important to consider various factors such as monthly income, expenses, liabilities, etc.
- You must wisely decide which car you can buy. Since there is a wide variety of options available in the market, it is easier to get lured by the expensive ones. However, you must have a set budget first and then make the decision of buying one
- Go through the car loan application process thoroughly, check your credit score beforehand, verify your application twice and then wait for the disbursal of the loan amount

## What is the use of a Car Loan EMI Calculator?

A car loan EMI calculator helps you calculate the amount of monthly installments that you’d be paying on your car loan.

The car loan EMI calculator makes use of the factors such as the actual loan amount, loan tenure and the applicable rate of interest on the borrowed amount to calculate your EMI amount.

A car loan EMI calculator actually works on the following formula-

EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^ (N-1)]

Where,

**EMI** stands for Equated Monthly Installment

**P** refers to the principal amount, or the actual amount borrowed

**R** refers to the rate of interest on the loan amount (to be calculated monthly)

**N** stands for the loan duration; meaning the time period in which the loan amount must be repaid (to be used in terms of
months)

Let’s take an example to understand this better-

Suppose, you take a car loan of Rs. 10 lakh for 2 years at a rate of interest of 20% p.a.

Now, since the rate of interest and loan duration given above are in different units, we need to first convert these
into months.

Loan duration in months - 12*2 = 24 months

Monthly Rate of interest - 20/12 = 1.66% p.m.

Now, using the above formula-

EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^ (N-1)]

EMI = [10 x 1.66 x (1+1.66)^24]/[(1+1.66)^ (24-1)]

EMI = Rs. 50,896

An EMI calculator uses the above formula to calculate the EMI on car loan in seconds. When using an EMI calculator, you don’t need to go through such long calculations of converting different units of loan tenure or rate of interest into months. Neither do you need to use such a formula to do the calculations by yourself.

You simply need to enter the three basic details related to your car loan, and you will see your EMI amount within seconds!
