Andhra Bank IFSC Code

The Indian Financial System Code, known through its acronym IFSC, is a unique 11-digit alphanumeric code that is required for carrying out online fund transfer via options of National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT), Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) and Immediate Payment Services (IMPS). Andhra Bank IFSC code is a mandatory requirement to transfer funds from or to Andhra Bank accounts. The Andhra Bank IFSC code number has the same prefix alphabets but is unique for each particular branch. This is achieved by a combination of three components: first four letters are alphabets that identify Andhra Bank, then there is a zero which is followed by 6 digits which are based on the address of the bank’s branch. For example, the Andhra Bank IFSC code for its Connaught Place, New Delhi branch is ANDB0000048. As mentioned earlier, here, ANDB is used to identify Andhra Bank, then a zero, and then 6 digits which identify the specific branch of the bank.

About Andhra Bank

The foundations of Andhra Bank were laid almost a century ago in 1923. When the nationalisation phase was initiated in the Indian financial sector in 1980, Andhra Bank became an entity that was wholly owned by the government. This public sector bank also forayed in international markets and established branches in the UAE as well as a JV in Malaysia. In 2019, it was announced that Corporation Bank and Andhra Bank will be merged together with the Union Bank of India.

IMPS is another banking innovation that is used for instant money transfer of amounts lower than Rs. 2 Lakhs per day.
