How can I improve my credit score?

You can improve your credit score by maintaining a good credit history. This can be viewed positively by lenders and can be done with 6 simple rules:
  1. Always pay your dues on time
    Late payments are viewed negatively by debtors.
  2. Always keep your balance lowIt is not always appropriate to use too much credit, control your usage.
  3. Maintain a healthy credit mix
    It is better to keep a healthy combination of protected (eg home loans, auto loans) and unsecured loans (such as personal loans, credit cards). Too many unsecured loans can be viewed negatively
  4. Apply for new credits in a moderate way
    You do not show credit as a need, apply for new credit carefully
  5. Monitor your co-signer, guaranteed and joint accounts monthly
    You are held equally responsible for wrong payments made in co-signer, guaranteed or jointly held accounts. Negligence of your co-holder (or guaranteed person) can affect your ability to get credit in your time of need.
  6. Keep reviewing your credit history frequently throughout the year
    To avoid unfortunate incidents like a rejection of loan application, buy your CIR from time to time.
