Transferring money within the country has become a fast, convenient and secure process courtesy the NEFT and RTGS services offered by the Prime Co-operative Bank.
With the advent of internet banking, the banking processes have become faster and more secure. With services like automated teller machines, individuals can access their accounts and make transactions no matter where they are.
One of the services provided through this internet banking revolution have been the online money transfer services. An initiative by the Reserve Bank of India, the National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) and the Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) services make it possible for people to transfer funds from their account to any other account within the country quickly and securely. These services are fast becoming the preferred choice when it comes to money transfers.
To make an electronic fund transfer using either if these service, one would require the IFSC or the Indian Financial Services Code of the banks. This code is a unique code assigned by RBI to every bank branch that is a part of the NEFT network. With internet banking now offered by many banks, most bank branches are a part of the NEFT network.
The IFSC code is used to identify the source and destination banks in a particular transaction, and it is also used to monitor the online fund transfers taking place within the country.
The IFSC code is an alpha-numeric string consisting of 11 characters. It comprises of the bank name and the branch code. The first four characters are the bank’s name, while the fifth character is left blank for later use. The last 6 characters are the unique code assigned to a branch. For example, the IFSC code for the Prime Co-operative Bank branch located in Bilimora, in Navsari district, Gujarat is PMEC0101313. Here, “PMEC” indicates the Prime Co-operative Bank, “0” is left blank, and “101313” is the special code assigned to the Bilimora branch.
The IFSC or MICR code is the most important component of the money transfer process. Since the transfer process takes place online, the IFSC or MICR codes are the only way to identify the particular bank branches in a transaction. Thus it should be ensured that those transferring money mention the correct codes.
If you wish to transfer money but are unsure about the IFSC or MICR codes, you can find them easily, either online or offline.
Those looking to find the codes offline can refer to the first page of the passbook issued by the bank branch, which will have the IFSC code printed on it. The bank also prints the code on cheque leaves issued by the branch in question.
If you are looking online, you can find the code for every bank branch on the bank’s official website.
