Prathama Bank IFSC Code:

With the advent of technology, internet has been probably the biggest blessing mankind has been bestowed with, since the last few decades. Be it shopping, booking tickets, connecting with your loved ones, browsing information; internet makes all of these possible just with a couple of clicks. When it comes to internet simplifying lives for millions of people across the world, banking surely tops the list. Being able to transfer funds and make other banking transactions online has spared the horror of going to a bank and standing in long winding queues to accomplish a simple transaction, for millions of people. Apart from speeding up the process of funds transfer, it also comes in handy during times of need and is hassle-free.

As per the RBI directives, to make the process of funds transfer simple and fast two electronic payment services called NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer) and RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement) have been introduced. Now, to ensure that the process of transferring money online is completed securely and quickly; a unique alphanumeric code known as IFSC code is compulsory. Along with the account details of the beneficiary, putting in the correct IFSC code of his bank branch is crucial for successful completion of transferring funds online. Please note that for banks to be able to offer NEFT and RTGS facilities to customers, the former has to be a part of NEFT network.

IFSC is an 11 character unique alphanumeric code, issued by the Reserve Bank of India to banks which are a part of the NEFT network. This assists the process of regulating the flow of funds from one bank to another bank into which the money is being transferred. With the help of a correct IFSC code users can transfer money to account held in a bank, which is a part of the NEFT network.

So, why does IFSC comprise 11 characters and what do these characters signify? The first 4 characters of the IFSC signifies the bank’s name in which the account is held. The fifth character is always zero (numeric). This has been reserved for future use. As IFSC is a unique identification code, the last 6 characters are representative of the specific branch in which the account is held. For instance, Prathama Bank IFSC code for the Pakbara branch is PRTH0011012. The first 4 characters ‘PRTH’ are representative of the bank name. In this case it is Prathama Bank. The fifth character is zero, and the last 6 characters ‘011012’ signify the specific branch. In this case it is Pakbara branch.
