CRIB reports to be made available online

Sri Lanka's credit information office will provide online access for individuals to check their own status and receive reports, an official said.

Sri Lanka's Credit Information Bureau (CRIB) collects information from customers of 95 institutions, and the information is available to participating institutions.

CRIB General Manager, Gamini Karunaratne, said individuals who want to check their credit status will be able to open an account online and get the credit report after paying a fee of Rs 250.  The account would be password-protected and only the individual concerned will be able to access the report.

He said, Sri Lanka was the first country in South Asia to offer such a facility.
This measure will help people understand their own credit status and improve transparency of the process, he added.  Karunaratne said, the system as well as a two-month public education programme will be available from January.
The Bureau has credit information about 600,000 credit records relating to 400,000 customers.
