IFSC Code: What is it? How does it work?

The Indian Financial System Code, known as IFSC in short, is a singular 11-digit numbering system containing a series of alphabets and numbers. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is responsible for issuing unique IFSC codes to every branch of banks in India. An IFSC code is important for account holders to transfer amounts of money using electronic funds transfer technique anywhere across India.

The 11-digit alphanumeric coding system in IFSC identifies the bank name using the first 4 digits, with the fifth digit as “0” for future use and the remaining 6 digits represent the branch name of the account holder’s bank. IFSC is essential to enter whenever attempting to transfer money from one bank account to another via online banking methods anywhere across the country.

Why is the IFSC code important?

Some of the most important points of IFSC code are:

How is IFSC code useful?

NOTE – IFSC code should not be confused with MICR code, which is also clearly printed on every cheque in the cheque book. The MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) code uses advanced technology and coding system to facilitate easier transactions using checks, as opposed to online money transfers where IFSC code is required.

How does the IFSC code work?

An IFSC code is an essential requirement to perform any money transfers using online banking methods anywhere in India. This unique alphanumeric code is extremely important to recognize the bank branch participating in the online transaction, especially when money is being transferred using NEFT, IMPS or RTGS methods.

Using IFSC code for online money transfers, it becomes easier to recognize beneficiary and recipient banks and their branches. Without an IFSC code, or with a wrong IFSC code, you face the risk of transferring the amount to the wrong bank. In such cases, the process to recover the mistakenly sent amount is extremely complicated and a hassle. You will need to contact your bank branch and request recovery of the transferred amount, which can take anywhere between a week to a month at times.

However, using IFSC codes, there is no risk of mistakes and errors that could result in transferring the amount to the wrong bank or bank account. The unique 11-digit code takes care of that.

Hopefully, now you know the basics of IFSC and learned the importance and essential nature of IFSC codes to perform online money transfers safely and successfully anywhere across India.
