The CIBIL Score, varying between 300 and 900, is a numerical assessment of your credit rating. The higher your credit score, the stronger your credit rating.

When applying for a mortgage or credit card, your CIBIL Score is highly significant. This score demonstrates your financial stability. Your credit history is included in the credit report, which shows you the credit or CIBIL Score. It tells banking institutions about how you manage your funds and whether you are creditworthy or not.

When reviewing loan or credit card applications, banks and financial institutes perform a CIBIL score check. If you have a poor CIBIL Score, they might decline your application or levy a higher rate of interest. However, if you have a strong CIBIL Score, they may comfortably approve your application.

How is PAN or Aadhaar linked to one’s CIBIL score?

When applying for any credit, along with your CIBIL score, the lending institution will verify your Aadhaar and PAN card, to authenticate your identity. To file tax returns, the Indian government has made it mandatory to link the Aadhar card to your PAN card. The PAN number is linked to people’s financial and bank accounts. This makes it easy for credit companies to locate your information. While applying for a loan, it is mandatory to submit your PAN card to the bank.

If your PAN card is missing or stolen and you obtain a replacement, your CIBIL/Credit score will not be affected because the PAN number will stay the same. However obtaining a new PAN number may have an impact on your CIBIL score. This is due to the fact that your credit score is dependent on your credit history, which is linked to your previous PAN card. If you request a new PAN, the CIBIL system will most likely raise a red flag on your profile.
