HSBC IFSC Code, MICR Code and SWIFT Code

Indian Financial System Code or the IFSC code is a standard Indian system used for transferring online funds between different bank branches. All Indian banks come with unique IFSC codes, which vary from branch to branch. HSBC IFSC code is a part of this Indian banking system. 

The IFSC code is a unique combination of alphanumeric characters, and it is required during any online transfer like NEFT, RTGS, and IMPS. This blog talks in detail about how you can find the IFSC codes of HSBC bank along with the MICR and SWIFT codes. You will also learn about the usage of these different codes, their purpose, and their benefits. Let's begin.


The HSBC IFSC code is an eleven-character code assigned by the Reserve Bank of India. The first four characters in this combination stand for the bank name, zero is the fifth character, and the last six characters correspond to the branch location or name. 


The IFSC code for each branch of HSBC is different for each branch. Let's see this formation with examples- the HSBC Kolkata Gariahat branch IFSC code is- HSBC0700005, and the HSBC Mumbai Bandra branch IFSC code is HSBC0400004. 

What is the importance of the IFSC code? The IFSC code is important to initiate any online money transfers. For example- if you are sending money to your friend via NEFT, you will need to know his/her bank's IFSC code in order to initiate a successful transaction. 

The IFSC code is allotted to locate each branch of the bank. A correct IFSC code will locate each branch no matter where it is located and help in payment processing. 


Magnetic Ink Recognition (MICR) is a technology used for printing paper-based documents or databases such as cheques. MICR code also helps in identifying branches of the bank, but it is not related to online transfers. Banks use a MICR reading machine to identify the branch and initiate a faster cheque processing. HSBC MICR Code has nine digits containing numerics only. 

The structure of the HSBC MICR code goes like the first three codes are for the city, the next three codes are for the bank, and the final three codes are for the branch. For example, the MICR code HSBC Allahabad branch is 380039002. The code is different for every branch.

The BIC or the SWIFT code of HSBC bank is an eleven-character code containing both numbers and alphabets.
