What is IFSC Code?

IFSC (Indian Financial System Code) is an 11 digit alphanumeric code which is used to identify the bank branch of your account. The first 4 characters of the IFSC code represent the name of the bank, the fifth character is 0 and the last 6 numbers define the bank's branch code. This code is used at the time of online fund transfer facilities like NEFT (National Electronic Fund Transfer), RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement) and IMPS (Immediate Payment System).
