Close your eyes and imagine standing atop a mountain, surveying the vast panorama below. Now, replace that mountaintop with a bird’s-eye view of your credit health where every detail is crystal clear and within your grasp. Welcome to the world of monitoring your CIBIL Score with the Bajaj Finance Credit Pass! Let’s take a closer look at the importance of credit score monitoring and how Credit Pass empowers you to take control of your financial journey.
The Importance of Monitoring CIBIL Score with Credit Pass
Understanding your CIBIL Score and the factors that influence it
Your three-digit CIBIL Score is a number ranging from 300 to 900 that showcases your financial credibility. The higher the score, the better your chances of getting approved for loans or credit cards. A score of 750+ is ideal because it opens doors to better terms and lower interest rates.
However, your CIBIL Score is not set in stone. It’s influenced by various factors, and keeping track of them is vital for maintaining a healthy credit profile. There are five primary factors with a contributing weightage to the calculation of your credit score:
Payment history (35%): Timely payments are the building blocks of a strong credit foundation. Every payment made on time and in full strengthens your CIBIL Score, while missed or delayed payments damage it.
Credit utilisation (30%): Just like consuming an entire pizza makes you appear greedy and hurts your physical health, using your total available credit each month is a red flag for lenders and hurts your financial health.
Length of credit history (15%): Lenders are impressed by an established track record of responsible credit management.
Credit mix (10%): A healthy credit mix proves that you’re capable of handling different types of credit and inspires confidence in lenders.
Credit enquiries (10%): Every ‘hard’ enquiry that occurs when you apply for credit and lenders pull up your credit report hurts your CIBIL Score. Too many of these within a short duration creates the impression that you’re credit hungry and relying too heavily on credit.
The need for monitoring your CIBIL Score
Imagine driving a car without looking at the dashboard. You wouldn’t know if the fuel is running low, if the engine needs attention, or how fast you’re going and if you need to slow down. That could be dangerous, right? Monitoring your CIBIL Score is like checking those vital gauges – you can detect any unexpected changes, identify areas that need attention, and take action before it’s too late. Keeping a close eye on your score helps you stay on track and make informed financial choices.
