IPL matches must be keeping you busy in the evenings these days. Keeping a watch on the scores and the points table is indeed important for the people in a country where Cricket is treated like God.

Credit score, or CIBIL score as is generally called derives the name from the agency maintaining the database, is nothing but a score based on the credit history of an individual. Credit score reflects the borrowing and repayment habits of the person by providing information about the nature of loans (including credit cards) held by him.
