Dues in Credit Report

Get your credit report from CIBIL, look for any non-"000" or "STD" statuses, dispute errors, and monitor payments for timeliness

Unaware about loan inquiries in the report?

If you see loans without your knowledge in your credit bureau report, you should first contact the credit bureau and the concerned lender to raise a dispute and request them to investigate the matter. They are required to investigate and respond to your dispute within a specified time frame.

If you are not satisfied with their response or resolution, you may approach the Banking Ombudsman appointed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The Banking Ombudsman is an independent and impartial authority that addresses complaints and grievances related to banking services, including credit reporting issues.

You can file a complaint with the Banking Ombudsman online or in writing, providing all the necessary details and supporting documents. The Banking Ombudsman will then investigate the matter and provide a resolution based on their findings.
