Get your free credit report from CIBIL in India – online

As I mentioned in a previous blog, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has mandated that that effective January 1, 2017, all Credit Information Companies (CICs) shall provide access, upon request and after due authentication of the requester, to a free full credit report (FFCR) once in a calendar year to individuals whose credit history is available with the CIC.  In that blog, I had listed the steps needed to get the report from CIBIL using snail mail. This blog will help you get your free credit report from CIBIL India online.
