For the uninitiated, CIBIL or credit score is like your financial report card. A CIBIL score is a three-digit number that ranges from 300 to 900 and represents an individual’s creditworthiness. A higher CIBIL score suggests good credit history and responsible repayment behaviour. Also, it improves the chances of your loan’s approval and ensures faster processing of your application.
