What is an IFSC code?

An IFSC code, short for Indian Financial System Code, facilitates online money transfers in India.

It is used for various online transactions such as National Electronic Funds Transfers (NEFT), Immediate Payment Services (IMPS), and Real-Time Gross Settlements (RTGS). ​

An IFSC code is a 11-digit alphanumeric code representing the bank name and branch. The fifth character in the code is a zero and is reserved for future use.
