What Is A CIBIL Score?

CIBIL score is the three-digit numeric summary of your credit history. Credit score ranges from 300 to 900. A score above 750 is considered a good credit score. Credit history records the borrower's repayment of debts, credit utilization ratio, overdue credit accounts, and many other credit-related pointers. A CIBIL score takes time to build up, and usually, it takes 18 to 36 months to obtain a satisfactory credit score.

Why Does Credit Score Matter?

During the loan application process, credit score plays a vital role. A lender or the bank can quickly check the applicant's repayments history. If the CIBIL score is high, the lender considers the application and determines whether the applicant is creditworthy. If the credit score is low, the bank may not consider the application further.

How Do You Read Your CIBIL Score?

The consumer always advises checking their credit report every three months. Within your credit report, ensure checking minor or major errors that may strongly impact your credit score.

What You Should Know When You Are Signing Up With The Credit Repair Agency:

  • The agency doesn't have the authority to correct the information in your credit report. They can help you in resolving the dispute on behalf of yourself.
  • The credit repair agency aims to restore or correct the poor CIBIL score.
  • There can be some charges by these agencies to contact the credit bureau and point out any errors that are reflected on the report.
  • Before the credit bureau considers it, the lending or banking institute must approve the modification.
  • The vital thing is your credit report, which is never shared with anyone. A credit report is a confidential document, so only customers can have it via post or email. So, it should be clear that even if these agencies work for you or if any modification is made in the report on account of the dispute raised by the agency, the customer can receive the credit report.
  • The consumer can do the work of a credit repair agency, but always remember they are experts and can resolve your problem within a small period. If you can handle it, the process can be tedious and time-consuming.
