Q- What is the difference between Credit Score and CIBIL Score?


By the virtue of being the first credit bureau in India, the credit scores colloquially are called CIBIL Score. The score given by any credit bureau is called credit score.

Q- What is a good Credit/CIBIL rating?


The bureaus in India rate an individual on a scale of 300 to 900. A credit score of 750 and above is deemed to be good and individuals in this score band will have faster access to funding. But a person with low credit score still may be able to get loans since the underwriting is based on various factors.

Q- Why is it important to know Credit/CIBIL Score?


Your credit score shall not only impact the approval of loan that you apply, but also has the potential to influence the rate of interest beign charged. A lower rate of interest will result into huge savings. Therefore, it is highly important to be aware of the credit score.

Q- What should one look into his Credit/ CIBIL Report?


Your credit report has primarily three sections. Personal information, details on all the loans and credit facilities that you would have taken and enquiries from lenders. Each of this broad information is critical to your access to credit and hence need to be looked at with care.

Q- Why we provide free credit score?


Unlike developed economies, where one has access to free credit score once in a year, people have to pay for the same in India. We at freescoreindia have resolved to extend free credit score for two reasons, first to bridge the disparity on availablity of free credit score and second to educate and spread awareness on this important aspect of every one’s financial life.

Q- Will an enquiry impact my Credit/ CIBIL Score?


You can withdraw your credit report from any of the credit bureaus as many times as possible. This will not have any bearing on your credit score. However, the enquiries made by lenders can impact the credit score.
