Last time Rajesh and Aditya met, they had a good session discussing the basics of the credit score. They were again together to enjoy the one-day IPL Match between CSK and KXIP. CSK won this match comfortably by 5 wickets but Rajesh seemed much happier. Digging a little, Aditya came to know that ABC bank had finally sanctioned Rajesh the housing loan after his credit score was traced from another credit bureau.
“I owe you a party, my friend. It’s all thanks to the basics you made me aware of the credit scores. I went to the bank next day and possibly due to my discussions about the credit score, the banker searched more into my credit history. I was pleasantly surprised when he said that while he could not fetch my credit history from one of the credit bureaus, he could find my credit history and credit score in CRIF High Mark database. With a score of 755, it was easy thereafter.” Rajesh said all this in one go. He was not able to hide his excitement.
Aditya was happy to hear about Rajesh’s housing loan sanction.
“Oh great, a good score indeed. CRIF score is calculated by CRIF High Mark, India’s leading credit bureau, which has the largest credit bureau database of individuals and supports millions of lending decisions every month.”
“But there must be a way to check this score by myself too. I must keep a regular track of my credit score now.” As always, Rajesh was excited about the new thing he was made aware of.
Aditya was happy to guide him again. It seemed like he had been waiting for this question since long.
