As a reputed credit information bureau, Experian strives to ensure the availability of accurate and updated information in its credit reports to the consumers. However, there could be situations where the information in the Experian credit report might not tally with the information at your hand, resulting in an erroneous credit score.
In case of such discrepancies, the Experian Dispute and Query resolution mechanism is at your service to rectify and resolve your credit score or credit report errors. You may contact the ECICI (Experian Credit Information Company of India Private Limited) Consumer Support for any of the following:
