The Credit Information Bureau (India) Ltd, better
known as CIBIL, is the premier agency for providing
credit reports and scores pertaining to individuals.
CIBIL sources financial data of individuals such as loan
and credit card information from leading banks and
other financial institutions in India. This data is then
presented in the form of a CIBIL credit report, also
known as a Credit Information Report (CIR).
CIBIL was incorporated in 2000 and has continued to
expand its presence throughout the country. It is
backed by Trans Union International and Dun and
Bradstreet, which are major global credit bureaus and
CIBIL credit score or credit rating is, in short, a 3-digit
figure ranging from 300 to 900 points which denotes a
person’s credit worthiness. This figure is derived from
the CIBIL report of an individual through advanced
statistical algorithms that take into account their
credit history including borrowings, repayment
patterns, defaults in repayment and other data
relevant to a person’s credit worthiness.
CIBIL scores are calculated on the basis of at least 6
months of historical financial data of an individual.
The data is fed into an algorithm with 258 different
variables; each with a different weight age.
Analyzing your CIBIL score :
-1: This implies that the borrower has no previous history
of borrowings with any bank or other financial institutions
in the country i.e. no credit history.
300-600: Individuals with CIBIL credit scores in this slab
are considered to be a credit risk by banks and other
financial institutions. In general, credit cards and loans will
not be provided to people in this slab.
601-750: This is the intermediate range of scores and will
allow you to borrow from various lenders. However, banks
may refer to your overall financial position and consider
other risk related criteria to ascertain your creditworthiness
e.g. stable employment, different sources of income, loan
750+: Scores above 750 are considered to be good and will
help you in getting loan or a credit card with ease. If your
credit score is high, you can leverage this to negotiate with
lenders for better/lower interest rates.
