Your credit score stays with you for life. Doesn’t matter if you are looking to take out a personal loan or not, your credit score is one of the most important scores you should definitely work on. It is an indication of your creditworthiness. Therefore, you need to check your credit score on monthly basis to spot any discrepancies and improve your scores if they are less than the prescribed number.
Four different bureaus give out credit scores including CIBIL, Equifax, Experian, and CRIF High Mark. Different financial institutions consider different bureau’s scores. You can check your average or general credit score regularly too. However, most of these bureaus ask users to take their subscriptions for regularly checking their credit scores.
If you don’t have a subscription to check your credit score multiple times for free, you can use the Airtel Thanks app for the same. This UPI transaction app is not limited to online payments and recharge, it can help you figure out your credit score at no extra cost.
