There are number of things you can do to make sure your credit score improves steadily. Firstly make timely repayments on all your dues. If you are one of those who keeps forgetting deadlines for card repayments opt for an auto debit route where your bank account automatically repays your dues before the deadline of your billing cycle. Also reduce your credit utilization ratio and do not be credit hungry by applying for multiple loans. Keep a periodic check on your score to make sure you are improving on your credit score.

Hi anilsona,

There are a number of things that you can do to improve your Credit Score. If you still hold a Credit Card, start paying your bills on time. This will definitely improve your score. If you have any existing loans, repaying them on time will also help. Maintain a credit utilisation ratio of 10%-30%. This is the ratio of your credit usage to your credit limit. For instance, if your credit limit is Rs.1,00,000, use just Rs.20,000-30,000 a month of the credit available to you. This will make you look like someone who uses credit in a responsible manner.
