- Go through the Interest Cashback Scheme on Business Loan for the interest charged during the moratorium period.
- The bank will credit the interest of the business loan as a cashback charged from March 2020 to August 2020.
- The difference between the Simple Interest and Compound Interest charged for 6 Months will be your Cashback amount.
In the month of March 2020, the central government has announced a moratorium period of 3 months during which the individuals were allowed to skip the EMIs on exiting business loans. Later on, the moratorium period was extended to August 2020. But most of the individuals were in the dilemma that the bank will charge interest on interest on their outstanding EMIs. So there is a recent Interest Cashback Scheme 2020 on business loan interest charged during moratorium issued by the central government. This scheme is applicable to all business loan borrowers whether they have opted for the moratorium period or not. The bank will give a Cashback to the individual on the interest charged during the moratorium period.
Interest Cashback on Business Loan
As per this latest scheme the interest on the business loan for the period of 6 months will be charged through the Simple Interest method. It was charged on a compound interest method but for the month from March to August, it will be charged on a simple interest method. So, the bank will credit the difference of the Simple Interest and Compound interest to the individual account. Everyone knows that the amount of compound interest is more than the amount of Simple Interest. Therefore, the Cashback on the interest will be the differences of these two methods.
How the Interest Cashback Scheme is Beneficial
After going through the above guidelines it is clear that the interest on your business loan will be charged on a simple interest basis and not on a compound interest basis. So, you can see the sum of money you will get as a Cashback on the loan amount if you have partially, fully, or not opted for the moratorium period.
Compound Interest on ₹5 Lacs for 6 Months @18%
If the bank is implementing compound interest on the above amount for 6 months then the final interest you will have to pay is as follows:-
|Months||Interest||Total Payable Amount|
You can see in the above table that the final interest on the principal amount of ₹500000 for 6 months at an interest rate of 18% is ₹46721.63. Now, let’s see the amount of interest on ₹5 lacs if it is charged through the Simple Interest method.
Simple Interest on ₹5 Lacs for 6 Months @ 18%
If the bank is implementing Simple Interest on the above amount for 6 months then the final interest you will have to pay is as follows:-
Simple Interest= Principal x Interest x Time/ 100
The Simple Interest on
₹5 Lacs for 6 months at the rate of 18% will be ₹45000.
So, the above example proves that the compound interest is more than the simple interest. The bank will give the interest Cashback on the business loan that will be the difference of ₹46721.63 and ₹45000. So, finally, you will get a Cashback of ₹1721.63 on the business loan interest and everyone is eligible for this Cashback whether he has opted for the moratorium period or not.
