Simple Interest Calculation on Bank Loan  Reply with quote  


I got a $319 (2,00,000INR) loan from xxxxx bank on 2009 with the interest rate of 6% for 5 years for my own business investment. Now my simple interest in this bank is $125 (7816INR). But i have tried simple interest calculator to check rate of interest for my bank loan amount. It shown just $96 (6000INR) as interest rate for 5years. I have asked that bank manager to clarify the doubt on interest rate $125, but no response. Is the bank's interest rate is ryt?

Kindly explain me the calculation on this. It would be most grateful.[/url]

By my calculation, that isn't a simple interest loan. You are right, if you use a simple interest definition, your interest should be ~$96 for the full term. However, if you compound annually and capitalize the interest for the full term, it comes out to ~ $125 interest for the full term.
