CIBIL TransUnion Score and Credit Information Report (CIR) is an evidence of your credit worthiness and plays a critical role in the loan approval process by a Bank.
Here are 6 simple rules to maintain a good Credit Score:
Always pay your installment & charges on time Late payments are viewed negatively by lenders.
Keep your balances low Always be prudent to not use too much credit, control your utilization.
Maintain a healthy mix of credit It is better to have a healthy mix of secured (such as home loan, auto loan) and unsecured loans (such as personal loan, credit cards). Too many unsecured loans may be viewed negatively.
Apply for new credit in moderation The total size of your debt reflects on your credit report and has an impact on your CIBIL TransUnion Score. Apply for new credit cautiously.
Monitor your co-signed, guaranteed and joint accounts monthly In co-signed, guaranteed or jointly held accounts, you are held equally liable for missed payments. Your joint holder's (or the guaranteed individual) negligence could affect your ability to access credit when you need it.
Review your credit history frequently throughout the year Purchase your CIBIL TransUnion Score and Report from time to time to avoid unpleasant surprises in the form of a rejected loan application.
