  1. Hello sir, how to use this calculator for govt servant’s HBA where only principal is deducted with the maximum of 180 instalments. The int is calculated to be repaid in maximum of 60 instalments. Felix

      1. What I wanted to know is in my case only principal is deducted initially. Only after that interest is calculated. Both of them aren’t deducted simultaneously. In that situation, how to use the calculator.

        1. Yes I understood what you mean. This calculator can be used only if you know how the interest needs to be paid. You will have to make the necessary modifications yourself if possible.

  3. Pattu Sir,
    your calculators are a reason for joy and sorrow sometimes 🙂 this falls in the latter category.
    this actually tells me how to reduce my overall Interest outgo visually… brilliant..
    Super simplified.
    One question
    1. Month where you have put as 0 , 1 2 etc, can be changed to reflect the date of EMI? so that tracking is easier..

    thanks.

  5. Examine the simple arithmetic formula,
    892=769 + 123
    Hence, 50 X 892 = 50 x (769 + 123)
    What is this?
    a) Banker accepts 50 lakhs , from an “ANNUITANT”, monthly annuity being 769 per lakh for 360 months. Total per month is 38450.
    b) Banker pays this amount (50 lakhs), to a house builder, obtains keys and documents of the house.
    c) Banker hands over the keys to the borrower, keeps the documents with Bank.The borrower is to pay 892 per lakh for 360 month, i.e., 44600/-
    d) The banker gets 44600 – 38450 = 6150 per month for 360 months. Take this as fees of the banker.
    In other words, Bank accepts Annuity deposit at 769 per lakh for 360 months and lends at 892 per lakh for 360 months, thereby pocketing a fees of 123 per lakh for 360 months.
    Examine (a) to (b). THERE IS NO MENTION OF THE WORD” INTEREST” OR “PRINCIPAL”.
    NOW READ THE FOLLOWING EXPLANATIONS.
    Entire mankind knows that earth is filled with 2/3 of water and 1/3 of land.
    So what? Nobody is worried.
    LOOK AT THE VICIOUS AMORTISATION SCHEDULE.
    The interest component is around 2 times that of the principal. THIS IS A MATTER OF WORRY.
    Now the question is what is the need of viewing the interest or principal content?
    Amortisation schedule is not for the Annuitant or Borrower.
    Amortisation schedule is a “UTILITY” for the taxman and tax consultant.
    In the case of Annuitant, TDS and tax liability of interest component is ascertained by the tax man and tax consultant.
    In the case of Borrower, the interest component and Principal component is used to arrive the benefits of TAX exemptions by the same taxman and tax consultant.
    DEAR BORROWER, why not evade or avoid THE VICIOUS AMORTISATION CHART
    THINK IT OVER AND OVER. SLEEP WELL.

  7. I am not a very excel savvy person ans especially around such ‘heavy-duty’ excels loaded with formulas. Hence asking you as I see the following improvements –
    a) EMI calculation should be editable and considered for further calculations (Cell B7). If I change this now, other calculations don’t seem to change. Most importantly B22 and B23 (Month / Year when loan will be closed).
    b) For floating rates column, currently it seems to be set at 10%, needs to allow 2 decimal places and thereon considered for further calculations – link it with a) above.

    Thanks!
