In the financial domain, there are several customer-centric processes or activities which have certain pre-requisites or eligibility standards. These are essential parameters to make the process smooth and hassle-free for the customer and as well as the financial institution. The Credit Information Bureau has established this standard in the form of a score called as CIBIL Score for borrowing and lending purposes.
A CIBIL score represents the creditworthiness of an individual. It is prepared by TransUnion CIBIL, one of the four credit bureaus functioning in India (other bureaus include Experian, CRIF High Mark, and Equifax). CIBIL score stands for Credit Information Bureau of India Limited score. This is the parameter that determines the worthiness of credit and the ability of the repayment of an applicant.
CIBIL score is a three-digit number derived through an algorithm based on the applicant’s historical financial data. Earlier, data used to take from a period of 24 months but now CIBIL has modified its algorithm to procure the data from a period of 36 months. A good CIBIL score is between 700 and 900. It is a trust builder between the borrower and lender.
CIBIL score check is the primary and most efficient decision-making tool to lend for financial institutions. Also, it is an effective tool for a homebuyer to understand the probability of procuring a loan in advance. For a homebuyer, it is advisable to get CIBIL score checked prior to making any advance payment to the developer if procurement of loan is to be followed. Later sections will speak about the benefits of a high CIBIL Score.
