2)Keep a check on your credit score: A timely review of credit reports will ensure no incorrect information is getting registered in the system. It also gives you ample time to rectify any mistakes.

4)Get your debt under control: This cannot be emphasised enough. Speak with your bank manager and settle. Debt can often arise due to factors out of your control including an unplanned illness, sudden job loss, or even factors such as overseeing hidden charges in statements and forgetting to pay bills due to multiple credit cards. Be calm and simply settle!

5. Manage multiple credit cards through an app: Let technology help you in managing multiple credit cards, without you having to tax your brains, literally! The mobile app, CRED, allows customers to not only use multiple credit cards on one platform, but even helps them pay bills on time and even rewards them for doing so by giving CRED points. Now, if you were thinking, Christmas came early this year, you might just be right! The benefits of CRED don’t end there. The app also finds hidden charges on credit card bills and notify you before you. Even your well-wishing colleague at work wasn’t so thoughtful! It’s just a three-step process to get access to the brand new venture by Kunal Shah (Founder of FreeCharge) and celebrate your creditworthiness. You can try out the CRED product here - Download
