What Is Bank IFSC Code?
The Indian Financial System Code (IFSC) is an alphanumeric unique arrangement of digits and letters or code which represents a particular bank or a particular branch taking part in four main Electronic Funds Settlement Systems prevalent in India. These four Electronic Funds Settlement Systems are:
- 1. Real Time Gross Settlement or RTGS
- 2. National Electronic Funds Transfer or NEFT
- 3. Immediate Payment Service Systems or IMPS
- 4. Centralised Funds Management System or CFMS
Technically, IFSC is an 11 character alphanumeric combination in which the first 4 characters are usually alphabets and represent the name of the Bank participating in the transaction. The fifth character is numeric 0 (zero) and is reserved for future use only. The last six characters can be numeric or alphabets that represent the name of the participating Branch.
Each bank has a unique IFSC code. The IFSC code is primarily used by the RTGS, NEFT, CFMS and IMPS systems to relay the messages from the source to the destination, In short IFSC is used to route the message from originating bank to the destination bank.
All the banks which participate in the Electronic Funds Transfer maintain a bank wise list of IFSCs and are also listed on the Official Website of Reserve Bank of India for the consumers as well.
