A CIBIL credit score can be explained as a 3 digit numeric outline of your credit history. It is calculated on the basis of your complete borrowing details such as repayment record, repayment pattern, the number and type of loan accounts and outstanding debts and default instances (if any). It ranges between 300 and 900 points. A healthy or a high credit score is important to get loans effortlessly.

A low score (close to 300) indicates defaults in the repayment pattern or other discrepancies pertaining to borrowings in the past.
