How long does your credit history stay on your credit report?

In India, information remains on your credit reports forever. This is different from countries such as the USA, where credit information gets wiped out after a gap of 7 years.The credit reports also contain a rolling 24 monthly counter of your default status (called DPD string). Since this is a rolling string, it gets overwritten every month. In general, however, your credit report will report your credit history permanently unless the lender modifies the status.
