Suppose you need a home loan for Rs. 50,00,000 and plan to repay the debt in 30 years. If you apply for the loan with the new rates, you are only charged 6.5% p.a. interest rate and your monthly EMIs amount to Rs.31,603.
On the other hand, if you had applied for a loan with the same loan amount and tenure at the old rates, you would have had to pay a minimum interest rate of 6.85% p.a. Your EMI payment, in this case, would have been Rs.32,763.
