  • Experian Credit Disputes and Queries

    While the credit information company, Experian, makes every effort to ensure that the information contained in a credit report is up to date and accurate, there can be times when the information you have and the information in the report don’t match. The thing to remember is that in such cases, you are provided the option to dispute the information and get it corrected. To ensure that the complaints about a credit report are taken care of in the best way possible, you can either call up the customer care of initiate the process using the form. The main thing to remember here is that before you can go asking for a dispute settlement, you need to get your Experian credit report to check it for errors.

    What information can be corrected?

    Any information that you deem to be incorrect can be corrected as long as the correction is a valid one. What this means is that just because you say it’s wrong, the company won’t make the change. The change can only be made if they can verify the mistake. For example, if the credit report shows that a credit card you cancelled earlier is still active, then you can inform them of this and the will verify it with the bank that issued the credit card. If it is indeed cancelled, they will update the information on the credit report. Information related to the repayment of loans and the dates on which the payments are made are also correctable along with any of your personal information that may have been entered incorrectly in the system.

    The Experian credit report query form

    In order to initiate a correction you will need to follow a set process. This process starts with the Experian Credit Information Report Query Application Form. This form is available on the company’s website and can be printed out. Things you need to know about this form are:

    You will need to fill in all the sections that are mandatory.

    You can check the box that relates to your query, if it’s about personal details, or use the space provided by them to inform them about problems with your credit history.

    The report will have to be accompanied by copies of an identity and address proof and the copies will need to be self-attested.

    If the form is not filled up properly or if the supporting documents are not signed or correct, the application won’t be processed.

    Goregaon (East),

    Mumbai – 400063

    Once they receive the documents, they will try to resolve the matter by confirming the mistake with the lender form whom the data is inaccurate.

Their customer care executives were kind enough to explain to me about the features and benefits of credit score in detail. I would end up saying that it was a hassle free experience of fetching the credit score.
