Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor.

To get the up-to-date Indian Financial System Codes (IFSC) for Indian Banks operating under the Reserve Bank of India’s National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) guidelines, go to http://www.rbi.org.in/scripts/neft.aspx and click on “List of NEFT enabled bank branches.” It’s an 8 MB Microsoft Excel file.

Tip: There are about 43,000 rows in this file! Luckily, there’s an easy way to find the IFSC for your particular Bank and Branch. Here’s how.

  1. Open the file in Microsoft Excel.
  2. On the Data menu select Filter and then AutoFilter.
  3. This will change the cells in the first row into drop-down boxes. You can now easily filter the data by selecting your particular Bank and Branch in cells A1 and D1.

Wait! Wait! Don’t tell me.

Now you can easily search for bank addresses, ifsc code, micr code and other contact details at Ratekhoj.com – the link is http://www.ratekhoj.com/banks/index.php

It’s quite simple to use.

http://www.ifscfinder.com is low friction, easy to use and clean way for searching IFSC code of any banks in India. This is similar to what “sri” had posted before, but the site is much more cleaner
