Introduction

Dena Bank has been in the service of the Indian public since 1938. It has grown to become a network of more than 1800 branches, providing various banking and financial services to the people. Dena Bank customers are allowed to transfer money to other bank accounts via NEFT, IMPS & RTGS. They need the IFSC Code of the respective branch to ensure that the amount is transferred to the right account. Dena Bank was recently merged with Bank of Baroda and Vijaya Bank.

Dena Bank IFSC Code can be found on their official website, your cheque book, your passbook, on the RBI website, generally on the internet, and also on the CreditMantri website.

What is an IFSC Code and why is it important?

The Reserve Bank of India assigns a unique eleven-digit number to each bank branch called the Indian Financial System Code or the IFSC. The specific number is a variation of the two, alphabets & numbers, uniquely assigned for a single bank branch. The IFSC code is a clear prerequisite for online financial transfers, namely the Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS), the Instant Payment Service (IMPS) and the National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT). Without the IFSC code, a banking transaction cannot be carried out because the IFSC code specifies the bank branch where the transfer is to be made.

IFSC Code Format

The IFSC code consists of 11 characters, the first four are alphabetical letters reflecting the name of the bank, and the branch is represented by the last six characters (usually numerical or sometimes alphabetical). And the fifth digit is currently set to 0 (zero); it is reserved for future use. The Bank IFSC Code allows NEFT & RTGS to send messages to the banks / destination branches. This is the basic version of the IFSC Code

Why should I use an IFSC Code?

The primary use of the IFSC Code is for online money transfer. India has three important money transfer systems; NEFT, IMPS & RTGS. All 3 processes include the IFSC Code of the banking branch of the Beneficiary, to ensure that the money is transferred to the Bank Account of the Correct Branch. Here are several other benefits of using the IFSC Banking Code:

  • It helps to transfer funds to the right account in the right branch. The IFSC code is unique to each bank or branch.
  • Allows a faster and easier transfer of money between bank accounts

  • Makes it much easier for banks to validate the settlement process.
  • Promotes purchases in paperless currency. Through the help of the IFSC, you will now benefit from an electronic, paperless bank transfer. It strives to make banking environmentally friendly. Business transfers, based on IFSC codes, have become quick, simple and paperless.

FAQs

IFSC Code can be found in different ways. Dena Bank IFSC Code can be found on their official website, your cheque book, your passbook, on the RBI website, generally on the internet, and also on the CreditMantri website.

2. Why is IFSC Code important?

3. Is the IBAN number and the IFSC Code same?

IBAN number is your International Banking Account number. It is used for international money transfers only. Whereas, IFSC Code is used for domestic bank transfers. They are not the same.

4. Can I transfer money without IFSC code?

The answer is both yes and no. In order to transfer money via Netbanking, IFSC code is needed. Netbanking allows you to transfer money via NEFT, IMPS & RTGS. However, in recent years, UPI money transfers or e-wallet money transfers have gained popularity. These methods only consider the mobile number linked to yours and the recipient’s bank account, and hence does not require the IFSC for a bank to bank money transfer.

5. What will happen if I enter an incorrect IFSC while transferring money?

The chances of making an error with the IFSC code are less as the page will display the branch details once you enter the IFSC Code, while adding the payee. In spite of that, if you have entered an incorrect IFSC Code, the transfer will match the account number of the recipient and send the money to that account. The chances of a bank having the same account number in two different branches is slim and hence the money will land in the correct account eventually. However, it is imperative that you double check the IFSC Code before initiating the transfer.
