Electronic fund transfer is a prominent feature of NetBanking. It allows you to transfer money to another bank account with ease. It is fast and secure.
ICICI Bank offers fund transfer on their NetBanking platform as well as through their iMobile App.
Fund transfer is mainly done through 3 methods; NEFT, RTGS & IMPS
All these 3 methods are done electronically while there is a slight variation in their transaction limit, charges and the time taken to transfer the money.
The National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) is an electronic payment system that facilitates direct money transfer from one bank account to another. Money is transferred directly from your bank account to another individual’s bank account, in any bank and branch, that is part of the NEFT network.
NEFT transfer is available 24x7. NEFT payments are made on a Deferred Net Settlement (DNS) basis, which ensures that NEFT transactions are settled in batches. A cut-off time is defined ahead of time, and all transactions received up to that point are settled in batches. In NEFT, these transactions (payables and receivables) are netted.
ICICI Bank NEFT transfer is available through the following channels:
