The main concern of credit card holders is their CIBIL score. To benefit from the advantages offered by a credit card, a person must always keep control of his CIBIL score. A good credit rating is necessary to qualify for lower interest rates on personal and home loans. However, people can sometimes have trouble determining their credit score in certain situations. Following this issue, Experian India has launched a new service in which customers can check their credit scores quite easily through WhatsApp. In accordance with the Credit Reporting Companies (Regulation) Act 2005, Experian India is the first credit bureau to be licensed in India.
Experian announced Nov. 9 that the program provides a fast, secure and efficient way to access its Experian credit report from anywhere, anytime. This is the first time a credit agency in India has offered the service, according to a statement from the company. Customers can easily track their credit portfolio and regularly view their Experian credit reports. The company said customers are now able to take control of their credit profile by viewing their Experian credit report, checking for irregularities, spotting fraud quickly and rebuilding their credit score.
Follow these steps mentioned below to determine Experian credit score on WhatsApp:
- Send an SMS saying “Hey” to Experian India’s WhatsApp number, +91-9920035444.
- Next, provide some basic information, like your name, email address, and phone number.
- You will instantly receive your Experian credit score in the chat box.
- You can also request a password-protected copy of your credit report from Experian. It will be sent to your registered email address.
Currently, India has 487.5 million WhatsApp users, the highest in the world. Thus, this service will benefit the majority of people in the country. As Neeraj Dhawan, Director of Experian India, said, this initiative marks an important milestone in Experian’s mission to use data for good. “By giving customers quick access to credit information, we hope to energize the credit ecosystem in India. This service, which is offered by India’s leading credit bureau, illustrates our commitment to fostering financial inclusion in India,” added Dhawan.
