Indian Private Banks Rely on CIBIL Data Repositories for Lending / Monitoring

Private BanksIndian Private banks have a deeper usage of data than PSU banks. Some PSUs banks are big users of the credit bureau and there are others which are still learning to integrate the systems. The critical issue faced by PSU banks is digitalisation of documents and providing the same to CIBIL.

To increase the scope and to have early warning systems in place, CIBIL is working towards including Self Help Groups / Micro-finance Institutions to give information, as they are generally the first to lend credit to individuals. At the Banks end portfolio management is gaining importance at banks, more so in private and multinational banks, to track if their customers have increased leverage with other banks.
