CIBIL Note: Simply put, the CIBIL score is a three-digit numerical summary of your credit history. It varies from 300 to 900 and represents the solvency of an individual.
The score is derived from the credit history found in the CIBIL report, also known as the Credit Information Report (CIR). Essentially, the CIR is an individual’s credit payment history across loan types and lending institutions over a period of time. However, it should be noted that a CIR does not contain details on savings, investments or term deposits.

A higher CIBIL score means that you are a responsible borrower and that the repayment behavior is up to the lender’s standards. A good CIBIL score not only improves the chances of your loan being approved, but also ensures faster processing of your loan application. According to CIBIL, a score above 700 is generally considered good.
