How much your EMI will increase
After the current hike, the total increase in the repo rate is 0.9%. Due to rate hikes by the central bank, lenders like banks and housing finance companies will increase their lending rates accordingly, which in turn means your EMIs will increase accordingly. If you have a home loan with Rs 30 lakh outstanding with a balance of 20 years at 7% interest per annum, your EMI will increase by Rs 1,648 from Rs 23,259 to Rs 24,907. For each rupee lakh of loan, you may have to hand out an additional Rs. 55 for EMI.
This may not be the last rate hike

“We may have seen the peak of inflation for now, but we may not have seen the end of it yet,” says Churchill Bhatt, executive vice president and debt investments,
Life insurance. Until inflation drops to the RBI comfort zone of 2-6%, he will be forced to exercise the interest rate hike option among other inflation control options. .
