What is the Interest Rate on a Personal Loan?

Your personal loan interest rate determines your regular EMI payments towards the loan repayment. At Tata Capital, we offer personal loans at low interest rates, along with a flexible repayment tenure.

Moreover, interest rates can vary for different borrowers depending on key eligibility factors like your monthly income, CIBIL score, loan amount, loan tenure, repayment capacity, employment nature, debt-to-income ratio, financial history, and more. So, the lower the interest rate on your personal loan, lower is the EMI that you need to pay, and more convenient your loan repayment becomes.

With Tata Capital, enjoy an affordable personal loan at lowest interest rates in the industry, starting at just 10.99%!

What is the current Personal Loan interest rate?

The interest rates on a personal loan can typically vary anywhere between 10.99% and 35% p.a. based on the eligibility calculation and how you fulfil the personal loan eligibility requirements of the financial institution.

Why are Interest Rates on Personal Loans so Important?

Personal loan interest rates are a significant factor to be taken into consideration because it determines the total cost of servicing the loan. Let us see how.

Every loan EMI comprises of two components viz; the principal and the interest. If your total interest amount is high, it will directly increase your total sum payable.

That’s because the personal loan EMI you need to pay, for repaying your principal amount over the decided loan tenure is governed by the latest personal loan rates applicable. Here, a lower personal loan interest rate will reduce your overall interest payout, thereby requiring you to pay lower EMIs to the lender over the loan tenure.

How is Interest Rate on Personal Loan calculated?

The personal loan interest is calculated using - flat rate and reducing balance method.

In the flat rate method, the interest paid remains fixed. The total interest payable is calculated on the loan amount borrowed throughout the loan tenure. Hence, the personal loan rates stay constant and don’t lessen even when the principal amount reduces as you pay your monthly instalments.

Contrarily, in the reducing balance method, the interest rate is calculated on the outstanding balance amount, which decreases every time you pay an EMI.

The mathematical formulae for interest on personal loan interest calculation are as follows:

    Flat Rate

    EMI = (Principal + Total Interest Payable) / Loan tenure in months

    Here, Total Interest Payable = Principal x Personal Loan Rate x Loan Tenure/100

    Reducing Balance Method

    EMI= [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^ (N-1)]

    Where P = Principal Amount

    N = Loan Tenure in months

    R = Personal loan ROI or rate of Interest

Personal Loan charges

Processing Fee

The processing fee is a non-refundable fee levied by lenders while processing your personal loan application. You are charged this one-time fee even if the loan does not get sanctioned. At Tata Capital, you are charged up to 5.5% of the loan amount + GST.


Penal Interest/Additional Interest

Penal interest is the rate of interest lenders charge on a delayed EMI payment. You are then required to pay the outstanding instalment inclusive of the additional interest on a personal loan. The penal interest at Tata Capital is levied at 3% per month on the overdue amount. 

The following miscellaneous charges are also involved under personal loans -

What are the factors affecting Personal Loan interest rates?

The following factors can impact your latest personal loan interest rates.

CIBIL score

Your CIBIL score that reflects your repayment capability plays a decisive role in securing a personal loan at low interest rates. With an excellent CIBIL rating, you can get more attractive interest rates.

Repayment history

Besides your CIBIL score, the lender also reviews your past credit record to determine your current personal loan interest rates. A clean credit history with no EMI defaults and disciplined payments is preferred.


Your income significantly determines your personal loan rates. If you belong to the high-income bracket, the lender perceives you as more likely to be stable and timely repay the loan and extends more competitive interest rates.

Employer’s reputation

The latest personal loan interest rates that the lender offers you also depends on your employer’s reputation. If you work with a credible organisation, the lender considers you less likely to default on EMIs and offers more attractive rates.

Debt-to-income ratio

If you are servicing multiple loans and credit cards, and your debt burden eats up a significant portion of your monthly income, the lender can consider you a high-risk borrower. It can impact the personal loan interest rates you will qualify for.

What are the types of Personal Loan Interest Rates?

Fixed interest rate

In fixed rate loans, lenders charge you a constant personal loan rate throughout the tenure. Here, your total interest payable and EMIs remain fixed.


Floating Interest Rate

Floating or variable personal loan interest rates in India are susceptible to fluctuating economic conditions. Here, you can get low interest personal loans initially, but the lender can revise the rates as per the repo rate. Hence, your interest payable can vary throughout the tenure.


Fixed and floating rates both offer a different set of advantages. While fixed rates keep your EMIs constant, you may pay significantly lower instalments with floating-rate loans. But, if current personal loan interest rates increase suddenly, you run the risk of paying bigger EMIs in the future.

Tips to avail Personal Loan at affordable interest rates

Here are a few different ways to get lower interest rates when applying for a personal loan:

  • Build and maintain a high credit score, preferably 750 or above. This will boost your creditworthiness and increase your approval rate.
  • Check for pre-approved offers from NBFCs, Small Finance Banks (SFBs), and Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs)
  • Enquire with NBFCs with whom you already have an existing loan account
  • Track personal loan rate concessions offered by lenders during festive seasons
  • Research and compare personal loan offers from various lenders
