Can you get an instant loan without a CIBIL score? This article will guide you on ways to avail of a loan with a low or zero CIBIL score.

What is a CIBIL score?

When you visit a bank to apply for any loan, the bank first checks your 3 digit CIBIL score before approving your loan application. This is to assess whether the borrower will pay back the loan amount within the given period. CIBIL or Credit Information Bureau Limit is an organization that maintains the data, such as the credit history of all the individuals and businesses. Banks and Financial institutions share their credit data with CIBIL. Based on this data, a CIBIL score of a particular individual is determined. Through this score, the bank checks the creditworthiness of the borrower before offering him a loan.

What is a Bad CIBIL score?

The CIBIL score ranges from 300-900. This score depends upon your repayment history, credit card utilization (a high credit card usage reduces your score), the number of times you apply for a loan, loans for different purposes (this helps in improving your CIBIL score). A high CIBIL score indicates cheaper and instant loans, while a low or bad CIBIL score means the opposite. Typically, a credit score between 300 and 699 is considered as a Bad or low CIBIL score. Banks tend to offer loans to individuals falling within the 750 –900.

What is a low or no CIBIL score?

When your CIBIL score drops below 750, that’s when the problem starts. Banks and NBFCs are reluctant to offer loans to individuals falling in this category, and even if they do, the interest is 0.5%-2% higher. So if a person with a good CIBIL score is offered a loan at an 8% interest rate, the other person with a low CIBIL score will be offered the same loan at 10-11%. And if the score falls below 700 (mainly due to defaults made in paying pack the previous loans), the banks will not offer any loan.

How to get a personal loan with a low or Zero CIBIL score?

Make sure the person whom you are adding as a guarantor has a good CIBIL score. This method is generally useful when you want to avail an education or personal loan etc.
