  • If you are new to the banking industry, you would realize the repeated use of the words CIBIL Score and CIBIL Report. This happens when customers want to seek credit from the bank. Though both terms are similar to each other, there are a few key differences that one needs to understand.

    CIBIL stands for Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited. It is one of the four major credit bureaus of India. If you don’t know by now, the credit score that is calculated by the CIBIL is known as CIBIL Score. Hence, the only difference is that credit score can be provided by any of the 4 credit bureaus of India (remaining three being Equifax, CRIF Highmark and Experian) whereas CIBIL score can only be provided by CIBIL India. All four scores are equally valid.

    Now comes the CIBIL report, also called the Credit Information Report (CIR). It is a collection fo the credit and loan information of a customer by the organization. The report consists of financial information but also personal details like PAN, Aadhar, and address. IT helps in tracking all your credit-related data. The report is generated through customer credit data received from various banks and leading entities. The data is then formatted to make a detailed report for each customer.

    If you don’t have a good agency to help you with your cibil rectification process, it would be really difficult for you to improve your score and get a loan. Hence, while selecting one you need to choose very carefully.
