Interest Calculation Methodology on EMI products
Interest rates as communicated at the time of availing of the product(s) shall be levied/ applicable.
The initial interest amount shall be computed from the conversion date to the immediate billing date for the Credit Card. For all installments billed subsequently, the interest shall be computed on monthly rests and the installments shall be debited to the Credit Card on the date of each monthly bill.
The initial interest amount shall be computed on the loan amount and the interest component of the Equated Monthly Installment (EMI) is calculated only on the unpaid balance of your loan as illustrated below:
Calculation of Initial Interest Amount:
Loan Amount x ROI% x (number of days applicable/360days)
Where 'number of days applicable' will be actual days from the loan booking/conversion date to the first billing date of the Credit Card for the initial interest amount
[ROI = Rate of Interest as communicated at the time of availing of the product]
As a result of the computation above, it is possible that the initial interest may be different from that communicated to you at the time of loan booking, depending on the loan activation date.
Illustrative example for computation of Initial interest amount:
For loan amount of Rs 1,00,000 with date of conversion as 1st March at a rate of interest of 24% against a tenure of 24 months, with first billing date falling on 25th March,
Initial interest amount will be =1,00,000 *24%*24/360 = Rs 1600
This will be billed as part of the Minimum amount due in the statement dated 25th March
Calculation of Interest component of EMI:
Outstanding Loan Principal x ROI% x (constant for 30 days / 360 days),
[ROI = Rate of Interest as communicated at the time of availing of the product]
Citi reserves the right to modify all interest from time to time, at its sole discretion with prior notice or in the event of any changes in the interest rate made by the Reserve Bank of India
