What is CIBIL Score?
CIBIL SCORE is a 3-digit numerical summary of your credit history, rating and report. Which is between 300 and 900. If your score is close to 900 then your credit rating is good. CIBIL scores play an important role in the loan application process. When a person approaches a bank or financial institution for a loan, the lender first checks the applicant’s CIBIL score and reports it. If the CIBIL score is low, the bank will not even consider giving the loan. If the CIBIL score is high then the lender looks at the application and other details to determine whether the applicant is credible or not.
