Is it possible to get loan without CIBIL check

Loans Without CIBIL Check

Would you ever lend money to a friend if you doubt his repayment capacity? No. Similarly banks and financial institutions want to secure their investments. Hence before lending money they do a thorough background check of the applicant and assess their creditworthiness. Only when they are sure that the borrower has the capability and willingness to repay the money back on time, will they approve a loan application. The credit scoring agencies have made this task easier for the banks. CIBIL keeps a complete record of a borrower's past payment history in a CIBIL report and calculates a credit score. This score is a true reflection of a person's credit behaviour. Banks rely heavily on this credit score to predict the borrower's future financial behaviour.
