CIBIL - Credit Information Reports

Credit Information Reports

The data that CIBIL collects is used in creating credit information reports, also known as CIRs. These reports contain the basic borrower information (such as names, DOB's and addresses), past payment history, overdue amounts, records of all the credit facilities availed by the borrower, suit-filed status and number of inquiries made on that borrower, by different Members.

CIBIL hasn't been able to live up to its own claims and the expectations of its users / stake holders with regards to quality of reporting and improving ways to ensure correctness of information of individuals. Its reporting is marred by non updating of records / wrong reporting and scores of individuals suffering on account of inefficiencies of CIBIL

Famous quotes containing the words reports, credit and/or information:

    He who is only a traveler learns things at second-hand and by the halves, and is poor authority. We are most interested when science reports what those men already know practically or instinctively, for that alone is a true humanity, or account of human experience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Most of the money given by rich people in “charity” is made up of conscience money, “ransom,” political bribery, and bids for titles.... One buys moral credit by signing a cheque, which is easier than turning a prayer wheel.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    The information links are like nerves that pervade and help to animate the human organism. The sensors and monitors are analogous to the human senses that put us in touch with the world. Data bases correspond to memory; the information processors perform the function of human reasoning and comprehension. Once the postmodern infrastructure is reasonably integrated, it will greatly exceed human intelligence in reach, acuity, capacity, and precision.
    Albert Borgman, U.S. educator, author. Crossing the Postmodern Divide, ch. 4, University of Chicago Press (1992)
