Find Punjab And Maharashtra Co Operative Bank IFSC Code, MICR Code and branch details for NEFT, RTGS & IMPS transactions.
In India, a major part of the population has started taking advantage of digital banking. IFSC code plays a crucial part in the fast transactions of online banking. The Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative Bank IFSC code is also used for the same purpose.
The Reserve Bank of India has initiated the system of the Indian Financial System Code. Banks use it for the identification of various bank branches irrespective of their location. The IFSC code, hence, helps in smooth transactions of money transfers.
When we hear about online money transfer, the three most important terms that come to our mind are- NEFT, RTGS, and IMPS. All of these fund transfer modes will be useless without the IFSC code. Hence, knowing these codes is vital for us.
Another banking code that is equally important is the MICR code. The purpose of the MICR code is quite the same as the IFSC, which is to locate bank branches. The primary difference lies in the way both the codes are used.
We use the IFSC code for online transfer, whereas we use the MICR code for paper-based documents like cheque clearance. We will throw light on both the codes and various fund transfer systems through the article, so continue reading.
We cannot stress enough the necessity of IFSC code in online banking. The same is true for Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative Bank IFSC Code. Like all other Indian banks' IFSC code, PMCB's IFSC code is also allocated by the Reserve Bank of India.
The IFSC code of Punjab and Maharashtra bank consists of eleven characters. We can divide the code into three parts which is a standard format of the code.
The first four characters, mostly letters, represent the bank name. The central character is zero. It is saved for future use. The last six characters, mostly numbers, represent the bank name.
For example, The Punjab and Maharashtra bank's Malviya Nagar branch IFSC Code is PMCB0000605. We can see that the code is falling under the RBI's format. The first four letters, PMCB, stand for the bank name, the middle character is zero, and the last six numbers, 000605, stand for the Malviya Nagar branch.
Each branch of the PMCB has a separate IFSC code. There are numerous banks in India; hence individual IFSC codes for each branch help to identify them without any hassle.
As we have mentioned in the introduction also, the IFSC code is mandatory to use fund transfer modes like NEFT, RTGS, and IMPS. Whenever you use any of these systems, there will be a separate space to enter the IFSC code, failing to which your transaction will be null and void.
However, when you enter the IFSC code, you must ensure that you are entering the correct code. If you enter even a single digit wrong, the transaction will not be completed. The correct IFSC code ensures that money goes into the correct account within minutes.
MICR or Magnetic Ink Recognition Code, as the name suggests, is printed using magnetic ink. The purpose of the MICR code is similar to the IFSC code. Banks use branch identification; hence, every branch has a separate MICR code.
The MICR code has nine numbers which we can divide into three parts. The first three numbers are for the city name, the following three are for the bank name, and the last three numbers are for the branch name.
Here is an example of the Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative Bank MICR code. 110328002 is the MICR code of Amar Colony, New Delhi branch. Here the first three numbers, 1103, symbolize the city name, the mid part represents the bank's name, and the last three numbers are for the branch name.
The purpose of both the IFSC code and MICR is the same, which is locating bank branches. But the MICR code is used for paper-based documents, while the IFSC code is used during online fund transfers. Therefore, every branch of the Punjab and Maharashtra bank comes with separate MICR codes.
Banks use the MICR code during cheque clearance. The unique magnetic ink used to print these codes helps prevent any fraudulent transactions.
The rapid awareness about digital fund transfers has made it crucial to know the IFSC code. Likewise, a large section of people who are yet very dependent on cheque transfers should know the MICR code.
