How is eligibility calculated?
Based on your income, different banks consider different percentages that you can set aside for paying EMIs. This percentage depends on parameters like your occupation and number of dependents. Your EMI is then calculated based on inputs like
- Interest rate of the bank.
- Time period for which you want the loan.
- Loan amount required by you.
The calculator then lets you know how much loan you are eligible for. Generally Medical allowance and LTA are not considered as part of income as banks consider them as reimbursements. Banks also consider the borrower's credit history and CIBIL score before sanctioning the loan.
The higher your ability to pay back the loan, higher would be the amount that you would be eligible for. Similarly, the loan amount is higher for bigger tenures and lower interest rates.
