Bank Loan plays an important role in fulfilling our needs in the modern life style without the worry of financial crisis. Bank loans are based on two way, mutual relationship between lender and the borrower. Banks or financial institutions are considered the credit worthiness of the customer by gathering a Credit Information Report (CIR) from Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited or in-short CIBIL. It then collects and maintains records of an individual payments relating to loans and credit cards a customer using. CIBIL uses these information provided by its member banks or financial institutions periodically say on a monthly basis. This creates Credit Information Reports (CIR) and credit scores for each borrower to evaluate and approve loan applications.

 A three digit numeric summary of your credit history is the CIBIL Score of your financial status. The Score is calculated by using the details found in the Accounts section and Inquiries sections on your Credit Information Report (CIR) and ranges from 300 to 900.
