Importance of CIBIL Score for getting an SBI Car Loan

Your CIBIL score comprises of your financial history with respect to credit and lending. This includes your existing debts, EMIs, credit card bills and upcoming payments. SBI has declared a minimum CIBIL score requirement of 750 for availing a car loan. So when you decide to take a car loan from SBI, ensure that you have a high CIBIL score or else your loan application will most likely get rejected. Banks require CIBIL score as they want to avoid the risk associated with a person with a poor payback capacity. A good CIBIL score helps banks and lending institutions determine the creditworthiness of an individual. A high CIBIL credit score indicates that you have had a successful payment history in the past and have maintained a healthy line of credit. Therefore, a CIBIL score is a very important factor which SBI will take into consideration before disbursing your car loan.
