  • Bad CIBIL score (550 and below)

    A bad CIBIL score or credit score is considered unhealthy for an individual who is looking for a loan. With a bad credit score, your chances of getting a loan are considerably low especially if you require a high amount of loan.

Once your credit score sees an improvement, you need to simply visit our website and select the required loan from the available suite of products.

  • Poor CIBIL score (between 550 and 649)

    A poor CIBIL score indicates that an individual delayed the loan repayment. It is highly risky as it also reflects the inability to repay a loan on time or a chance of delay in loan repayment. To improve your credit score, it is advised that you first repay the previous loan amount before applying for a new loan.

  • Average CIBIL score (650 and 699)

    An average CIBIL score is neither considered good nor bad. It is advised that an individual must improve their credit history by making payments on time. This helps build trust in your creditworthiness. With an average CIBIL score, you may get a loan approval but with a slightly high-interest rate and with lesser additional benefits. To prevent your CIBIL score from reducing further, you need to pay all the loans on time.

  • Good CIBIL score (between 700 and 749)

    A good credit score is better than an average credit score but provides a lower comfort level compared to an excellent CIBIL score. With a good CIBIL score your chances of loan approval improve multifold. Improving your credit score further may allow you to get a loan at a very attractive interest rate from us and ensure hassle-free approval.

  • Excellent CIBIL score (between 750 and 900)

    We always advise you to keep your CIBIL score between 750 and 900 as it indicates that you have made all the repayments on time. Borrowers with excellent CIBIL scores are considered low-risk borrowers - who pay all their credit card bills and loan EMIs promptly. Furthermore, they are also eligible for the best interest rates on the approved loan amount. Generally, an individual with an excellent CIBIL score can avail of a high amount loan with us at an extremely attractive interest rate and other benefits like minimal paperwork, flexible loan tenure, etc.

How is your CIBIL score calculated?

CIBIL is one of the prominent credit bureau which is authorised to publish the credit score of borrowers. It is directly regulated by the RBI’s (Reserve Bank of India) Department of Banking Operations and Development. CIBIL score is influenced by several factors which determine the category or level of your credit score.

Factors that impact your CIBIL score:

  • Credit or repayment history

    When you apply for a loan or credit card, you must have a good credit or repayment history. This establishes your creditworthiness and allows us to provide you with a lower interest rate and other benefits. Repaying the loans on time will help you increase your credit score and any default in payment or late payments will reduce your credit score.

  • Credit Utilization

    Credit utilization is majorly influenced by how much percentage of credit card limit is utilized monthly. Overspending or overutilization of credit limits will hurt the credit score.

  • Credit mix and repayment duration

    Credit type is what kind of loan you have applied or availed, depending upon your requirements. Availing for a mix of secured and unsecured credit products including credit card will help you in maintaining a healthy credit score. A longer tenure of servicing a credit product positively impacts your credit score.

  • Credit Inquiries

    Credit inquiries are conducted to check your credit history. If you have applied for multiple loans in a short period, it will hurt your credit score. Also, each time you apply for a loan, it will reflect on the credit report. This will reflect credit-hungry behaviour, which is looked at negatively by lenders.

What is the Importance of a CIBIL Score?

Considering the uncertainties of life, you might require a loan or credit at some point in time. When applying for a loan, a borrower with a high CIBIL score is likely to get quick loan approval compared to one with a low CIBIL score. Moreover, a high CIBIL score will help build trust when it comes to loan repayment. This ensures that you receive attractive interest rates and other benefits.

  • Creditworthiness:

    A good credit or CIBIL score establishes you as a creditworthy borrower. A high credit score indicates that you have been very timely and disciplined in your credit behaviour in the past. Chances are that this credit behaviour will continue going ahead, creating a good impression on lenders.

  • Loan or Credit Approval:

    The importance of the CIBIL score increases even more at the time of loan or credit approval as it determines the eligibility of the borrower. The final call on the loan amount is made using the CIBIL or credit score as a major guiding factor. A good CIBIL score ensures the approval of the desired loan with a low-interest rate. If you have a bad CIBIL score or credit score, there are chances of getting rejected or getting a loan with a high-interest rate.

  • Attractive Interest Rate:

    CIBIL score directly influences the rate of interest. An individual with a good credit score is eligible for the best interest rates available. Someone with a poor credit score will have to bear a high rate of interest which will impact repayment and finances.
