I'm adding this to the Apache Fineract user's list as that's where the conversation should go. 

The validation for domain rule violation of EMI is working properly as the interest is so high on the loan (18% monthly) which correspond to an APR of 628.76%

If you look at the error message in the developer console, it will contain more details which help you understand the nature of the error.

See this thread from December for more:

There was a bug related to high interest loans disbursed on 29, 30, 31 but that has been fixed.


everything is functioning properly correct?
