What is Credit Score?

A three digit numerical expression from 300 to 900 representing the measure of creditworthiness of an individual may be defined as a Credit Score. This three-digit numeric summarises a consumer's credit history and credit behaviour based on, total debts, repayments of debts, number of open accounts, etc., recorded in a Credit Report typically sourced from a Credit Bureau.

Lenders such as banks, NBFCs, and credit card companies use this score to evaluate the potential risk of lending money to an individual with the aim to minimize and diminish losses due to bad debts. With the use of this score, lenders determine who qualifies for a loan, at what rates, and the loan value. A credit score also helps lenders determine profitability, and who or which customer will most likely bring in more revenues. In short, this scoring system determines the lender's decision to offer you credit.
