  • Pre-EMI interest: Where you have availed only a part of the approved loan amount ie pending final disbursement, you pay interest on the portion of the loan disbursed. This interest is called pre-EMI interest. Pre-EMI interest is payable every month from the date of each disbursement up to the date of commencement of EMI.

  • Fixed Rate of interest means the rate of interest on the loan sanctioned remains unchanged for the entire duration of the loan.
