Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) IFSC Code:

The system of IFSC (Indian Financial System Code) is a brainchild of RBI’s to standardize and keep track of all domestic fund transactions. IFSC codes have been allotted to all the branches of banks in India to easily identify transactions done through a particular branch. IFSC codes are alphanumeric, 11-digit codes, which are unique to a single branch and do not ever repeat. Money transfers can be done to a particular branch by compulsorily entering IFSC codes or MICR codes. These codes also helps users ensure that the transferred funds go to the right person, without any hassles. The Reserve Bank of India has assigned separate codes to all banks in India and mandates their usage for all online transactions. An IFSC code can be explained as carrying three different segments. The first four alphabets represent the name of the bank to which the code has been assigned. Then comes a zero which is generally a control character, left for future use. The next six digits of the code signify the specific branch of Indian Overseas Bank and this is always unique. The last six digits change with every branch available.
