How to Check Cibil Score

How to check CIBIL Score for free and understand how to get your CIBIL report with these simple steps

Whether you are applying for a loan or a credit card, your CIBIL score plays a major role in your application and approval process. Having a good CIBIL score is essential. But what exactly is a CIBIL score and how can you find out your CIBIL score for free? Here’s more information:

What is a CIBIL score?

The Credit Information Bureau India Ltd. (CIBIL) is authorised by the RBI to generate a detailed credit record of an individual. A CIBIL score or a CIBIL report indicates your credit information and creditworthiness with a three-digit number, on a scale of 300-900. The score is calculated based on your loan and credit repayment history. Banks and non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) take this score into account when you apply for a loan or a credit card with them.

A CIBIL score of between 700-900 is a good score. A good CIBIL score can simplify and speed up your loan application process. At IDFC FIRST Bank, a good credit score ensures you receive maximum rewards and rich benefits.

A score of above 750 puts you in a solid position to avail of personal loans, home loans and auto loans at low interest rates. A good credit score also gives you access to some of our premium products. You can get any of our top credit cards with a score of 750 or above.

Tips for maintaining a good CIBIL score

To maintain a good CIBIL score, remember these three things:

  1. Always pay your dues on time. Whether it is paying credit card bills or repayment of loans, ensure timely payments to get a good record in your CIBIL report.
  2. Do not use the complete spending limit on your credit card. Maxing out your credit limit can have a negative impact on your CIBIL score.
  3. Do not depend on just one form of debt. To maintain a good CIBIL score, it is also important that you seek financial help from a secured and unsecured sources such as a credit card (unsecured) and a loan (secured).

Keeping track of your CIBIL score and paying all the dues on time will help you maintain a great CIBIL report, which will, in turn, help you get the best deals from banks.
