CIBIL is acronym of Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited). CIBIL is formed in association with DUN & BRADSTREET and TRANSUNION. Cibil provides the credit report of any person or firm / company. On analysis of any CIBIL report we can judge the credit worthiness of the customer (individual or company). In a CIBIL report there are a number of entries about each credit taken by customer (individual or company) from different financial institute or bank. Credit Information Bureau (India) Ltd; CIBIL is India's first Credit Information Company, also commonly referred as a Credit Bureau. CIBIL gather and maintain records of individuals' and non-individuals' (commercial entities) payments pertaining to loans and credit cards. These records are provided to CIBIL by member banks and other lenders on a monthly basis.
