FAQ: Editors’ answers

A personal loan is an unsecured loan, meaning you don't need to pledge any collateral to borrow the money. It's typically a short-term loan, with an average repayment period of 3 years. Personal loans are approved based on your creditworthiness and financial situation, and they generally come with higher interest rates compared to secured loans like car loans or home loans.

The calculator is designed to be user-friendly. Simply enter three key pieces of information: Loan amount: The total amount you want to borrow. Loan term: The duration of the loan (in months). Interest rate: The annual interest rate on the loan. Once you enter these values, the calculator will automatically compute your monthly EMI payment. You can also adjust the sliders to see how changes in loan amount, term, or interest rate affect your EMI.

Personal loan EMIs are calculated using the reducing balance method, where interest is charged on the remaining loan balance. While the EMI amount stays constant throughout the loan term, the portion going towards principal increases over time, and the interest portion decreases.

The formula used for calculating EMI is:

EMI = P * r * (1 + r)^n / ((1 + r)^n - 1)

CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited) is India's first credit bureau. It maintains a database of borrowers' credit history and provides this information to lenders in the form of credit reports. A good CIBIL score is generally required for loan approval.

¹Approval Odds are not a guarantee of approval. Credit Karma determines Approval Odds by comparing your credit profile to other Credit Karma members who were approved for the product shown, or whether you meet certain criteria determined by the lender. Of course, there’s no such thing as a sure thing, but knowing your Approval Odds may help you narrow down your choices. For example, you may not be approved because you don’t meet the lender’s “ability to pay standard” after they verify your income and employment; or, you already have the maximum number of accounts with that specific lender.
