What is the IFSC Code and why is it important?

The Reserve Bank of India assigns a special eleven-digit number to each bank branch called the Indian Financial System Code or the IFSC. The particular number is a combination of the two, alphabets & numbers, that are uniquely allocated to a single bank branch. The IFSC code is a simple precondition for online financial transactions, namely the Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS), the Instant Payment Service (IMPS) and the National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT). Without the IFSC code, a financial exchange cannot be carried out since the IFSC code determines the bank branch where the payment is to be made.

Format of IFSC Codes

The IFSC code consists of 11 characters, the first four are alphabetical letters representing the name of the bank, and the branch is represented by the last six characters (usually numeric or occasionally alphabetical). The fifth digit is automatically set to 0 (zero); it is reserved for future use. The Bank IFSC Code enables NEFT & RTGS to send messages to banks / destination branches.

Why am I required to use an IFSC code?

The primary use of the IFSC Code is to ensure safe and accurate transfer of money electronically. India has three primary money transfer systems: NEFT, IMPS & RTGS. All 3 procedures shall require the IFSC Code of the Banking branch of the Beneficiary to ensure that the money is credited to the Bank Account of the Right Branch. Here are some other advantages of the use of the IFSC Banking Code:

  • It helps transfer money to the right account in the right branch. The IFSC code is unique to each bank or branch.
  • Allows for a quicker and easier transfer of money between bank accounts
  • Removes the risk of manipulation when applying the IFSC Code
  • The IFSC Code makes a direct transfer between the sender and the receiver. If an electronic transaction takes place, all sides get updates or e-mails from the banks involved, whether it is a credit transaction or a debit transaction.
  • Render it much easier for banks to verify the settlement process.
  • Promotes transactions in paperless money. You will now benefit from an electronic, paperless bank transfer with the aid of the IFSC. It aims to make banking eco-friendly. Business transactions, based on IFSC codes, have become simple, fast and paperless.

Can I transfer money without the IFSC code?

The response is both yes and no. IFSC code is needed to transfer money through Netbanking. Netbanking helps you to transfer funds via NEFT, IMPS & RTGS. However, UPI money transfers or e-wallet money transfers have gained prominence in recent years. These approaches only consider a mobile number connected to your bank account and the recipients bank account, and thus do not require a bank transfer through the IFSC.

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

The odds of making a mistake with the IFSC code are smaller as the page shows the branch information as you type the IFSC code before adding the payee. However, if you have entered an incorrect IFSC code, the transfer would match the recipients account number and send the money to that account. The odds of a bank holding the same account number in two separate branches are small and thus the money will eventually land in the right account. However, before beginning the transfer, it is crucial that you double check the IFSC Code.
