The Credit Information Bureau (India) Ltd.(CIBIL) in association with TransUnion have come up with ‘CIBIL TransUnion Personal Loan Score'. One of its kind in the Indian market, the personal loan score enables the credit lenders in taking lending decisions objectively based on customer's history. The software provides analysis on the probability of an applicant turning 91 days defaulter, over the next 12 months on consumer or personal loan. In other words, the score provides creditor predictability in extending loans to creditworthy applicants.

The score was developed using technical expertise of experienced TransUnion analysts. CIBIL inputs included providing data related to credit history and understanding of Indian market. Thukral added, “Our partnership with TransUnion allows us to accelerate the implementation of world-class services and solutions for the market, while keeping it tailored to our Indian customers and economy.”
