What is a CIBIL score?

CIBIL stands for Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited.  This first established credit information company in India gathers and maintains credit details of individuals and commercial bodies i.e. details of loans takens, its repayment details, credit card payments and so on. Based on these CIBIL gives a rating which is a three digit number ranging between 300 to 900 summarising the entire credit history of the concerned party be it an individual or an organization. Also referred to as the Credit Bureau, CIBIL  is licensed by the RBI and the Credit Information Companies Regulation Act, 2005 governs it.

The Significance of CIBIL Score 

The CIBIL score is a three digit number that ranges between 300 and 900. Higher the CIBIL score more is your established credibility among lenders. Every month different  banks and financial institutions report their customer’s credit-related transaction details to the bureau. This includes details of every loan taken, loan repayments made, outstanding information, new loans applied, loan %, credit card repayments in the period, applications for new lons, and so on. All this data is subjected to different statistical calculations and complex analysis to derive at the individual’s/organizations CIBIL score. A good loan repayment/credit card outstanding repayment history ensures a good score. Higher your score better are the prospects of getting a loan or credit card.

How does Your CIBIL Score and Your Home Loan Relate?

Your CIBIL score and Your Home loan approval process are very much related. When you apply for a home loan to buy a property,  the first thing the banker or the financial institution does is to check your CIBIL score. This is to evaluate your repayment capability and gauge whether  you are a high risk or low risk customer. Higher your CIBIL score better possibility for the approval of the loan, a lower score would delay the process and at times even culminate into the loan being rejected. Your credit score is the mirror of your loan repayment capability and your home loan lender makes the best use of  it to derisk the process. A good credit score of 750 or above is preferable and it brings with it an array of benefits –

  • Better home loan interest rate – A higher CIBIL score makes you eligible for a better loan interest rate for your loan.In many cases the lender offers a discount on interest rates to customers with good CIBIL score.
  • Sanction of Higher loan amount –  A good CIBIL score enables you for a higher home loan amount. Since your lender is convinced of your loan repayment capability and willingness they would be ready to lend a greater amount
  • Approval for Longer loan tenure – A  higher CIBIL score places you in a position to request and receive approval for a  longer loan period.
  • Easy and Quick Loan approval process – A  higher CIBIL score ensures an easy and effective process. Your chances are much higher of acquiring the desired amount of loan from the bank or the non-banking finance company (NBFC) you have applied for. Different banks benchmark different CIBIL score for approval, however most of them prefer a score of 750 or more.

How to Improve Your CIBIL Score?

You can get your CIBIL  score by applying directly on the official CIBIL website. A CIBIL score of 750 or more is definitely good news, else you will have to work towards improving it. Here are some means

  • Be prompt in your payments – The most definite way to maintain a decent score is timely payments of your credit card outstanding payment and EMIs. Though agencies might  ignore the first few delayed payments, repeated delays would definitely impact your good score.
  • The right mix of Loans – It is better to have a borrowing history with more secured loans (there exists a collateral or security). So remember to have a right mix of  secured/unsecured loans for a better credit report.
  • Always stay within your credit – It is advisable to remain within your credit limit, this would improve your score and exceeding that would have a negative impact.
  • Lesser is Better – Limit the number of credit cards and loans you acquire. Keeping it less will also help you repay them on time and multiple ones will also cause you to overspend leading to accrued debt in our life.

How to Invest in Real Estate?


A brainstorming session with family members can be the first step towards this important step. Here are some important aspects that you can focus this discussion on

  • An analysis of the different investment options will reveal the nature of different investments in the current scenario.  Crashing Stock markets, fluctuating gold prices, low interest rates on bank deposits and banks declaring themselves as insolvent, these will help understand that real estate investment is the wisest decision in current times.
  • A little more insight and analysis of the current situation will reveal that Investment in Residential real estate and not commercial buildings will produce rental income. As the result of the paradigm shift towards work from home, commercial buildings will not produce rental returns in the near future.
  • Now since this correct decision has been taken, here’s how to go about implementing it.

Decide on the Budget:

This is the prime factor on which other considerations like the nature of the property (Plot/Apartment), the choice of locality, the Sq.ft of the house & no.of rooms if it is an apartment or the area of the plot depends on.

Choose the City: 

It is always better to invest in metropolitan cities for the growth potential for the assets is very high there. There will be growing industries – Automobile, Manufacturing, IT and all this brings employment opportunities, and hence there is demand for residential properties to satisfy the needs of the professionals.

Also choose to invest in the same city where you are currently residing, for easy management and maintenance of the asset. If it is your first house, you will have the pride of moving from a rented house to your own house, if it is for investment it is sure to earn returns in the form of rent and also good appreciation.

Plot or Apartment: 

This is not a tough decision  and is basically governed by the basic requirement, Is the purchase of the property for immediate use or is it an investment?  In case of immediate use, should look for an apartment/villa in the suitable neighbourhood where you can  move-in in the next 3 months, this is to eliminate the burden of EMI and the rent for the current accommodation. If investment is the criterion then purchase of plot in a developing locality is definitely a good option as the investment will be less and the appreciation will be quite high.

Choose the builder :

The choice of the property developer is very crucial. Established and recognised promoters are reliable and also deliver on their promises. They can be relied to deliver on their commitment of time and also the design specifications. Choose RERA approved projects, for as a buyer your rights are protected and also there is transparency in the process and the necessary approvals are in place acquired by the developer.

Survey the Neighbourhood of the property:

Choosing a developed or the locality with scope for development is very important.  The appreciation of the property depends on this factor. Choose one which has good employment opportunities in the neighbourhood, this will draw more professionals who would want to rent properties close to their place of work, so there will be regular rental income. Similarly the property’s worth will also multiply.

Verify the documents & Seal the Deal :

Once all the above factors have been considered and the right property selected, proper verification of all the related documents (can link  to our blog will lists all the documents to be checked) is mandatory, help can be sought with legal consultation for this. Once verified the next step will be the registration of the property to seal the deal.

10 Tips to Upgrade Your House to a Monsoon Friendly

Monsoon is an exciting season for sure, the rustic smell of the soil before the rain, the cool breeze of air, or the sight of the tiny droplets of rain that pour down, when enjoyed from the balcony sipping a cup of hot tea is a pleasurable experience. However there are some challenges that monsoon throws at us. Be it the leaking walls or the unchecked drains that clog or the electrical wires in the damp walls that short circuit, features that can be well avoided with some careful planning and execution before the onset of monsoon.

Plan a Pre-monsoon examination of your house and ensure that you address these points

Leakages: perform a thorough examination of the roof, terrace (if you reside in the topmost floor of your apartment complex or own a villa), locate all the leakages, apply sealant and provide a waterproof coating for all. Sometimes water from the leaks in the roof and terrace can seep into the walls and make them moist and the paint would peel off, hence it is essential that you fix the leakages thoroughly before the monsoon and ensure that the waterproof coating dries before it. If budget permits waterproof coating of the entire terrace/roof is definitely preferred.

Drainage system: Ensure that the drainage system at home is clear of blockages, a regular de-clog routine every week is essential for this. Ensure that the drains in the terrace are cleaned to avoid dirt, garbage and dried leaves in case u have a terrace garden. Clogged drains in the terrace will result in rain water accumulating in the roof which can seep in through the finest of leaks in the roof. If necessary you can get a plumber inspect the drains at home to detect and fix leaks.

Electric Connections & Fittings: inspect all the electrical connections at home to ensure there are no loose/exposed wired or damaged/rusted fittings. When you find one or have the slightest of doubts, get a qualified electrician to inspect and fix it immediately. Cover all the electrical fittings that are outside, example those in the balcony or terrace, and that can be exposed to water, exposed ones can explode when water falls on them, a potentially dangerous situation.

Painting: It is best to plan all your painting activities of the house well before the monsoon. It is advised to paint the exterior and interior of the house once every 5-6 years, so that the building is maintained well and is protected from wearing out due to weather. A waterproof coating is preferred for the exterior, i.e. the roof and the outer walls, as it acts as a protective layer and prevents rain water from seeping through the walls

Doors & Windows: Wooden doors and windows will absorb moisture and swell up during monsoon. So remember to paint them or provide a sheet of protective sheet to prevent this. Remember to repaint your balcony grills, for unpainted ones rust and become weak, due to atmospheric moisture during this season.

Pre-emptive Pest Control: Insects breed during this moist season and is of serious health concerns. Perform a complete pest control activity to stop the breeding of mosquitos, flies and also the potentially highly harmful termites. Termites when untreated can completely erode the walls, wooden fixtures and damage the very foundation of the house.

Furniture care: A proper coat of varnish and other appropriate furniture care routine will ensure that the furniture at home stay fine during this season. Dampness at home can result in growth of fungus. A property treatment will prevent this and ensure the sheen of the furniture at home.

Ventilation & Sunlight: Ensure that there is ample ventilation at home and adequate exposure to Sunlight. It would be a better idea to have an additional set of curtains that are little light and also less expensive. Light curtains would allow sunlight to come in and also be easy to maintain during this season. Moist houses would have an unpleasant odour and also have a bad odour.

Wardrobe – Remember to place a few camphor balls or any other insect repellent in your wardrobe to keep silverfishes and other insects at bay. Your expensive clothes in your wardrobe should be put out in sunlight before monsoon to keep them clean and shiny

Tending to Garden – Remember to mow your lawn, prune your plants before the onset of garden. Keep your indoor plants outside each morning, so that they get enough sunlight and also some showers and bring them in during night.
