What is the Co-Relation of CIBIL Credit Score to Loan Approval ?
Many of us have asked what are the chances of Loan approval after the Banker pulls up CIBIL Credit Report and Score ?
We posed this question to CIBIL and the following chart shows Relation between Credit Score & Loans sanctions
From the above Chart it is evident that Higher the CIBIL Score [800+], easier for an Individual to get Loan Approved. If you call on the other end of the spectrum i.e CIBIL score is less than 650 then you’ll need a co-guarantor who has Solid Credit Score or a Co-Lateral to secure your loan.
Apart from CIBIL, Equifax, Experian Credit Reports and Score, the banker also wants some assurance that you have constant source of income to repay the debt obligation he’ll potentially extend. So your Salary Slip or Income Tax payment records come in handy.
