EMI Full Form: Know All About EMI Here!

By Amrit Gouda|Updated : September 14th, 2021

EMI Full Form: You would have come across the term “EMI” in several instances, including at shopping malls, electronic stores, or even while buying a car or bike. Have you ever wondered, “What Is The Full Form Of MI?” EMI is short for Equated Monthly Installment. In simple terms, EMI is a fixed amount that the buyer of a product has to pay the borrower on a particular date of the month along with a rate of interest that remains constant. This is a preferable option when the buyer cannot afford to pay the entire amount in one go. The EMI is paid every month until the entire amount is paid.

How Does EMI Work?

One needs to know how EMI works before opting for an EMI payment.

  • EMI is not the same as other variable payment options. In the latter, the borrower can pay a higher sum back based on his will.
  • When making an EMI payment, the buyer has to pay precisely the same amount every month until the completion of the EMI period.

 Below, we have listed out the necessary points for you to calculate your EMI:

  • The rate of interest that the bank or any other lender has charged you.
  • The total amount that you have borrowed. This loan amount is also known as the principal.
  • The third factor is the time given to you by the bank or any other lender to pay the entire amount, i.e., the loan amount along with the interest.

Terms To Remember

Processing Fee: To avail of EMI, one has to pay a certain nominal fee, which is called the processing fee. This is usually a small amount for every Rs.1000 of the amount one wants an EMI for.

Reduction Of Credit limit: When an individual gets an EMI scheme, their bank blocks the total cost of the product being purchased through the EMI option, thereby reducing that person’s credit. However, the bank will then increase the credit limit every month based on the monthly EMI payment.

Advantages of EMI

  • EMI allows you to buy products easily even if you cannot pay the whole amount upfront.
  • Using the EMI option to buy things without paying the whole amount upfront can help you not disrupt your savings.
  • EMI allows you to buy expensive things (like laptops, cars, bikes) that are beyond your financial capability. This is because instead of finding ways to gather the entire sum of money, one can pay smaller amounts in regular instalments.
  • EMI allows borrowers to avoid involving any middleman, and the borrower can pay the lender back directly every month.
  • EMI is available on a wide range of products with attractive offers.
  • These days, one can also choose their tenure of paying back to the bank or any other lender based on their financial capability.
  • Borrowers will also know exactly how much money they have to pay every month to pay their loan off. This will help them plan their finances.

EMI is something that many of us have come across while purchasing something as luxurious as a house or as simple as a laptop. It is important to know the full form of EMI.
