Difference between a credit report and a credit score?
Credit report is a complete record of all loans and credit cards availed by you in the past compiled by one of the credit bureaus such as CIBIL, Experian, Equifax or Highmark. The credit report also contains your personal information and a record of all loans and credit cards applied irrespective of whether those were sanctioned or not. Against each account, the credit report shows your payment track record, sanctioned amount, current outstanding balance, date of opening of account, last payment and track record of any delays in paying installments.
Credit score, on the other hand is a three digit number assigned by the credit bureau based upon all the above information. The score can range from 300 to 900 in India and better the past repayment record, higher the score. More recent credit activity tends to have a higher weightage than that in the past.
