All the four credit bureaus in the country are licensed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Lenders like banks and non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) send your credit information to all the credit bureaus. They do not differentiate between the bureaus and share all your details related to your credit with them. Each credit bureau has their own algorithm which they use to calculate your credit score. Therefore, credit scores from all the credit bureaus are considered as valid. Although, the algorithm to calculate credit score can be different for different bureaus, the five components that are taken into consideration while calculating the credit score remain the same. Credit bureaus consider factors like repayment history, type of credit, age of credit, credit exposure, and credit inquiries while calculating the credit score. It must be noted that credit scores from two credit bureaus can be different, however, they will be accepted as valid. A marginal difference in credit scores from two different bureaus is common. A difference of around 50-60 points in the credit score is generally observed by banks and NBFC.
