How Does it Work?
Suppose you are interested in purchasing a product worth ₹30,000 and would like to avail of the No Cost EMI Option to pay over three months.
No Cost EMI Plans
Example of how a No Cost EMI Plan works
|Purchase Value||EMI Plan||Interest (pa)||Total Cost
with EMI Interest
|Total Cost||Interest on
|₹30,000||₹10,000 x 3 months||₹638(13%)||₹30,638||₹638||₹30,000
So in effect, if No Cost EMI is applicable on your purchase, it will be given as an upfront “EMI discount” at the time of making payment. This will cover the interest charged by your bank.
Please note that you will be charged interest by your bank on the discounted value of your purchase. However, the total amount you pay for the product including interest will be equivalent to the product purchase value.
You can also make your purchase without the No Cost EMI option.
