Find Uttarakhand Gramin Bank IFSC Code, MICR Code and branch details for NEFT, RTGS & IMPS transactions.
The RBI (Reserve Bank of India) uses an exclusive code to identify every branch and bank in the country. The code is popularly known as IFSC (Indian Financial System Code) and is essential to initiate online financial transactions. For example, Uttarakhand Gramin Bank IFSC code is necessary to send money to accounts in that bank.
Banks have other unique identification codes apart from the IFSC code, such as MICR and branch code. Each code serves a different purpose and has a vital role in facilitating transactions between accounts.
In this article, we’ll read more about the bank codes, know what they mean, the purpose they serve, and how you can easily transfer money online to accounts in Uttarakhand Gramin Bank using NEFT, RTGS, and IMPS.
The Indian Financial System Code contains eleven characters and is a combination of alphabets and numerical. The code follows a standard format for all banks and their branches. The first four characters are alphabets and denote the bank code. The alphabets are followed by a zero (0) and continued by digits representing the branch code.
However, the IFSC codes of some branches don’t have digits except zeros. This happens when a national bank sponsors a rural bank or when two or more banks have been amalgamated to form another bank.
For Instance, let’s take the Uttarakhand Gramin Bank Basoli Branch IFSC code is SBIN0RRUTGB. Here we can notice that the IFSC code has only zero and ten alphabets. That’s because the Uttarakhand Gramin Bank is sponsored by SBI (State Bank of India).
The first four alphabets, SBIN, represent the State Bank of India. These are followed by the mandatory zero (0). The digits representing the branch code are also alphabets, RRUTGB, and denote the branch code of Uttarakhand Gramin Bank in Rishikesh, Dehradun. Now that we know the IFSC code of UGB let’s learn more about why we need the IFSC code and how it has to be used when sending money through online banking.
Online payments made through NEFT, RTGS, and IMPS require the IFSC code of the person you want to send the money to. The IFSC code is used to connect the account number to the right branch of the bank. This ensures that the money will reach the person it is intended for.
That said, entering the correct IFSC code is important to complete the transaction successfully. Make sure to find the IFSC code of the receiver’s bank before making the payment. The wrong code will result in an unsuccessful transaction. You need to wait for the bank to credit the debited amount back to the account.
Magnetic Ink Character Recognition is known as MICR code. It is another unique identification code and is used to easily identify and verify the cheques of a bank’s branch. The MICR code speeds up the process of clearing a cheque and depositing money in the receiver’s account through ECS (Electronic Clearing System).
The MICR code has nine digits. It is divided into three parts:
The MICR code is located on the bottom part of a cheque and on the cheque book. You can also get the MICR code on the first page of the passbook. But unlike IFSC code, MICR code is mandatory for all banks. Some rural banks don’t have MICR codes.
Luckily, the Rishikesh branch of Uttarakhand Gramin Bank has a MICR code of 249544104. Here, 249 represents the city code, 544 is the bank code, and 104 is the branch code. The MICR code verifies that the cheque presented is an authentic financial instrument.
