Advantage of ‘no dues’ status over ‘ settled’ status in CIBIL report for Credit card dues

POSTED BY Ankur Sehgal ON November 28, 2012 11:38 pm COMMENTS (2)

hi, 

I had a fraud with SCB in the year 2009 and now, on checking the CIBIL report, i found out that the amount has risen from 11K INR to 65K INR. On following up with SCB, the Collection team came back giving 2 options – No dues (41K INR) or Settled (25K INR)

PLease let me know the advantage of No dues status in Cibil over Settled status for my future.

 

thanks,

ankur

  1. Better go for no dues with 41k , else the settled option will anyways not help you for future !

    If you have a “settled” remark on you report, it means you failed to pay off the loan/credit on time making you financially irresponsible/untrustworthy. It might affect you in future where banks will certainly look into your settled remark and might be hesitant to give you loans (any kind, Car/House loans, new credit cards).Also, the settled remark remains in your report for a minimum of 7 years. Its better to pay off the amount and get yourself a no due.
