Your CIBIL score is a numeric representation of the data present in your credit report and serves as an indicator of your financial health. In order to arrive at your CIBIL score, CIBIL gathers data from various credit providers such as loan providers and credit card issuers. You can find details of your credit history in your credit report. Upon viewing this report, you have the option of raising a CIBIL dispute should you notice any discrepancy in the information. For example, you may find an error in the status of your loan repayment or in your PAN card details.

A successful CIBIL dispute resolution not only corrects inconsistencies, but also bolsters your score and in turn gives you access to better credit options in the future. Here is a brief rundown on how to resolve your CIBIL dispute.

Types of CIBIL Disputes

CIBIL disputes are broadly classified into two types.

1. Company Disputes

Company disputes are limited to duplicate accounts, ownership errors and account details like PAN, credit type, company name and loan amounts.

2. Individual Dispute

In an individual dispute, the error needs to be a case of a duplicate account or a glitch in personal details. These inaccuracies may be in the form of an incorrect company name, PAN number or a wrongly entered payment status.

CIBIL Dispute Resolution Process

After you raise a CIBIL dispute, errors are scrutinised and the disputed fields are marked as ‘under dispute’. CIBIL then takes up the matter with your lender and rectifies mistakes. You will receive email updates giving you your CIBIL dispute status every 7 days and an SMS as soon as your report is corrected.

It's important to note that during this process CIBIL does not make any changes to your report directly. It first approaches the concerned financial institution and after authorisation, makes the necessary amendments. Since the turnaround time for this process can take up to 30 days, it's best to keep tabs on your account and resolve matters internally before the data is submitted to CIBIL.
