Bike loans have helped many people achieve their dream of owning a bike, and finally being free from dependence on public transport and its erratic timing. Thanks to competitive financiers, interest rates have dropped to very affordable levels, and borrowers get convenient repayment schedules. However, a borrower may find themselves in a situation that makes it difficult for them to repay timely. In such cases, the person has to repay the mortgage due amount.
When you get your bike purchase financed from Shriram City, you get a repayment schedule tailored as per your circumstances and you have to repay on time accordingly. The repayment usually happens through monthly installments (EMIs), though after 6 payments the option to foreclose all at once is there.
Tardy status occurs when any particular EMI has not been paid by its cutoff date. Financiers make contingency arrangements for a grace period in cases of payment delay, and the overdue status happens when all these dates get exceeded. Loan Overdue can also be called EMI bounce or past due, and warrants a loan late payment charge.
To find out your loan late payment charges, refer to your agreement and read the terms connected to EMI bounce carefully. At Shriram City, the loan late payment charges are calculated at a penalty rate of 36% on the installment amount in arrears. When you miss an EMI payment and then pay it off late, Shriram City calculates the penalty rate on the amount and adjusts the delay duration into the loan overdue amount formula. Bank charges of Rs 500 are also applicable for each check bounce instance.
The easiest way to calculate your loan outstanding amount is by using MS Excel sheets; especially if you have multiple EMI bounces.
Make the following columns from A to I, with the amounts and respective months occupying corresponding rows:
A- Installment Amount Due (for that month)
B- Due Date of EMI
C- Tardy Interest Rate
D- Installment Repayment Date
E- Delinquent Interest Amount
F- Penalty Duration in Months
G- Days Passed After Notice Reminder
H- Days Adjusted with the Last Date of Month
I- Total Loan Bounce Charges
The amounts will start from row 2.
Fill in the details for columns A to D. Thereafter, you can use the MS Excel formulas as follows:
Remember to click the small square dot, and drag it down to apply to all the rows that you have missed payments for.
E= A2*C2 [Product of values in A and C]
F= dated if(B2, D2,”m”) [tells how many months of penalty has to be paid]
G= dated if(B2, D2,”md”) [tells how many days have passed over the date as per notice reminder]
H= G2/eomonth(D2,0) [tells the ratio of notice overdue days since EMI bounce charges have to be paid for those days too]
And finally calculate I, the total loan bounce charges as I=(F2+H2)*E2.
If you have multiple missed payments, double click the small square at the corner of I2, and the calculation will come for each. Then you can add up the total loan late payment charges across all those missed months. This is more helpful when you want to foreclose your bike financing.
To calculate manually without Excel, follow these steps:
Here is an example:
Monthly Installment Due=Rs 10,000
Overdue Interest Rate= 36%
Payment Due Date= 31/12/2020
Penalty Repayment Date= 31/1/2021
Penalty Duration= 1 month
Days Passed After Notice Reminder=0
So, the loan unsettled amount for December 2020 is 36% of Rs 10,000= Rs 3600 multiplied by 1 month, i.e= Rs 3600.
Your actual loan bounce charges due depend on the time duration for which your specific penalty rate is applicable and the installments you missed. These numbers are just to help you understand how to do it.
Shriram City Union has a free online loan due amount calculator that you can use for convenience and to know the charges accurately. Remember to contact your lender support, as soon as possible, when you miss EMIs.
When borrowers fail to repay the EMI on time due to any reason, there will be an overdue penalty. On average, EMI bounce penalty notice gives 7 days for meeting the dues when borrowers default without informing. When an EMI bounce happens, you should find out the loan unpaid amount and the penalty, and pay it off as soon as possible. If the check has bounced, then check bounce charges are also included with the loan unsettled amount.
If a mortgage delinquent amount persists for more than 90 days, the financing in question gets categorised as a non-performing asset. Missing your EMI payments hurts your credit history and may make it harder to avail of financing in the future. If you fail to repay for 3 months, you get labeled as a defaulter, and the lender may seize your bike or any other security promised.
If you don’t respond, the lender will contact the guarantor to ensure that the loan tardy amount, bank charges, check bounce charges, etc. are paid off.
If the worst happens and you lose your bike, get in touch with the lender right away. They give you a duration of 3-6 months to repay your loan bounce charges and other dues, and take back the bike. But, they will auction your bike if you don’t take the chances offered for repayment or settlement.
