CIBIL Score: In simple terms, CIBIL score is a three-digit numeric summary of your credit history. It ranges from 300 to 900 and represents an individual’s creditworthiness.
The score is derived using the credit history found in the CIBIL Report, which is also known as Credit Information Report (CIR). Essentially, CIR is an individual’s credit payment history across loan types and credit institutions over a period of time. However, it must be noted that a CIR does not contain details of one’s savings, investments or fixed deposits.

A higher CIBIL score means you are a responsible borrower and repayment behaviour is as per the lender’s norms. Good CIBIL score not only improves the chances of your loan’s approval but also ensures faster processing of your loan application. According to CIBIL, a score above 700 is generally considered good.
