Very often we come across advertisements which offer lower rate of interest rate on loans. Many times, the lending institutions resort to advertising rate of interest with a asterisk mark and the asterisk mark will say that the rate of interest is a Flat rate. Some lenders advertise their loan products at Diminishing rate of interest. As a wise investor/borrower understanding both these types of Interest calculations will help you make correct decisions.

Flat rate method

Flat rate of interest is a simple rate of interest calculated on the full loan amount without giving effect to the amount of loan repaid.

Diminishing/Reducing Balance Method

On the other hand, diminishing/reducing rate of interest gives effect to the amount of loan repaid.

We will take the following calculation :-

Loan Amount              Rs 100000/-

Tenure                         5 Years

Rate of Interest           10% p.a.

Flat rate Method

Interest Amount          =          Rs. 50000/-

(100000 x 10% x 5)

EMI Amount              =          Rs. 2500/- per month for 5 years

(Rs. 150000 / 60 months)


Diminishing/Reducing method 

EMI Amount              =          Rs. 2125/-

Total Amount paid      =          Rs. 127500/-

Interest Amount          =          Rs. 27500/-

The difference in Interest amount under both the methods is on account of the fact that under reducing/diminishing balance method, the principal repaid every month is taken into account for Interest/EMI calculation and as a result, the total interest amount under reducing balance is lesser than that of the interest as per Flat method.

We provide herewith the following tools for various calculations :-
