I too have a State bank account. And just 2 days back I withdrew my money from paypal. IFSC code is a code which consits of alphabest and numbers. Each state bank branch has a particular bank code. IFSC code just locates the bank. For example if the bank code of the branch where u have ur state bank account is 4556. Then the IFSC code will be SBIN0004556. But I am not sure . Ti may change depending on the area where the State Bank Branch is located. You can obtain the IFSC code of all State bank Branches at http://www.sbi.co.in/branchlocator.jsp . Just do a search by typing the bank code. And u will get all details of that banch including the IFSC code. Or just give me the branch of STate bank where u have your account. I will provide you the IFSC number. Best Wishes!

Hi, I give u the right information regarding this, since i deal with IFSC codes in my project. IFSC code is a eleven digit alpha numeric code number that helps in uniquely identifying a branch of a bank(not bank) in any given city. As others said the IFSC code will be printed in cheque book above the serial number of the cheque. U can get all the banks IFSC code, copy paste the foll link www.standardchartered.com/in/cb/ibanking/ibft/svc_ibnk_ibft_faq.html In the above site if u search for IFSC, explanation will be there and also u have a link to download the Bank's IFSC's

IFSC stands for Indian Financial System Code. A unique code given to each branch of each bank to make it easy to locate the branch while transacting with respective bank. How you get one, either visit the banks web site or call there customer support and ask for IFSC Code for a given branch. Hope this answers your queries.

It's a special code assigned to each bank. It will not be seen in your pass book. But if you ask at your bank, they will tell you what the code. It is a unique code identifying each bank..something like a pin code. You can even call up your bank and ask them for the code. Hope you get the code quick (first check if State Bank of India is included in the list of banks that Paypal pays to). I'm yet to go to my bank and find my IFSC code. I'll be doing it this week sometime.

i'm sure you've understood what IFS code means. anyway, insteadind of searching here and there on the internet, just look into your chequebook. the code will be printed on leaf of your chequebook. hope my suggestion was helpful.
