IFSC Code- How Does it Works
Let us take an example of the ICICI Bank IFSC code to understand more clearly what IFSC code is and how it works in transactions. The IFSC code for the Delhi Branch of ICICI Bank is ICIC0001136.
- Here, ICIC represents the name of the bank, which is ICICI Bank
- The 5th character, that is 0, is for future use
- The other 6 characters, 001136, specifically helps the RBI find a bank branch without any error.
Now, let us understand how IFSC works. When a fund transfer should be done to a particular payee, one has to enter the account number and branch-bank IFSC code. Once the remitter provides these both details, the money is transferred to the account holder and IFSC helps out avoiding any errors/mistransfers in such transactions.
Apart from fund money transfers, IFSC code can also be used to buy any insurance and mutual funds through online and net banking. The Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) National Clearing Cell monitors all money transactions and the IFSC code helps the bank and RBI keep track of all transactions and also execute money transfers without any error.
