Introduction

The Indian Financial System Code (IFS Code or IFSC) is an alphanumeric code which is necessary while transferring funds between bank accounts in India. The code is unique to each bank branch participating in Indias three main payment and settlement systems: Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS), National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) and Immediate Payment Service (IMPS).

The IFSC code is made of 11-characters; The first four are alphabetic characters representing the bank name, and the last six characters (usually numeric, sometimes alphabetic) represent the branch. The fifth character is 0 (zero) and is currently reserved for future use. Bank IFSC Code allows the NEFT & RTGS systems to direct the messages to the destination banks/branches. A normal format of the IFSC Code looks like this

IFSC is issued by the Reserve Bank of India to all the banks and respective branches. It is an important factor required to transfer money from your bank account to another bank account. You can transfer money to another bank using NEFT, IMPS or RTGS. All these 3 methods require the IFSC code of the recipient’s bank account so that the money is transferred to the correct account number in the correct branch.

IFSC code gained importance with the introduction of Internet Banking. Previously, MICR code, printed on cheques or demand drafts was used to identify the correct bank branch where the amount needs to be credited. With internet money transfers gaining traction, IFSC code became prominent in the digital banking system for convenient money transfers.
