What is a CIBIL CCR or CIBIL report?

A CIBIL CCR (Company Credit Report), commonly known as the CIBIL report, is a record of a company’s credit history that proves its creditworthiness. “This is created from data submitted to CIBIL by lending institutions across India. The past payment behaviour of a company is a strong indication of its future behaviour. It is therefore important to understand that the CCR is heavily relied on by loan providers to evaluate and approve loan applications,” explains CIBIL.

What is the CIBIL rank for CCR?

The CIBIL RANK grades your CCR in the form of one number. The number is picked from a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is the best rank that can be achieved. “CIBIL Rank indicates your company’s likelihood of missing payments, which is one of the key factors considered by a lender while evaluating a loan application. The closer your rank is to 1, the better are your chances of securing a loan,” according to CIBIL.

CIBIL rank is available for companies with current credit exposure of up to ₹50 Crore
