Credit score (CIBIL score) has become one of the most important metrics for banks to track. All banks and NBFCs use credit reports by to evaluate borrowers during the loan approval process. Credit scores help banks determine whether a customer gets approved or not, how much credit they are eligible for, and at what rates they can borrow. The quality of credit reports has improved over time but they are not yet completely error free. Credit bureaus work with a lot of data from a lot of different sources, and small errors can be expected. However, as a borrower, one can check their credit score frequently to be aware of such an error creeping up. How to get your CIBIL/credit report for free?
