The ability to transfer funds from one account to another is a huge advantage to the banking sector, enabling their customers to move funds and make payments electronically with just a click of a button. With the help of NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer) and RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement) systems, UCO Bank customers can easily transfer their money to a beneficiary of any bank account. Initiated by the RBI, both NEFT and RTGS payment methods use a unique code known as the IFSC code to function. The Indian Financial System Code or the IFSC is a unique alphanumeric combination exclusively allotted to every branch participating in NEFT and RTGS transactions. IFSC codes are compulsorily used for every money transfer to eradicate any confusion or mistake in online transactions. It is to be noted that no two branches can have the same IFSC codes.
UCO Bank IFSC codes are 11 digit codes divided into three sections - The first 4 digits are alphabets indicating the name of the bank. 0 is the fifth digit. And the last 6 digits are exclusively allotted to each branch of the bank. To illustrate – The IFSC Code of the UCO Bank Davangere branch is UCBA0001043. UCB indicates the bank name - UCO Bank IFSC Code. The fifth digit is zero and 001043 is a unique numerical code allotted to the Davangere branch of UCO Bank.

The first three digits of the MICR code represent the city, the next three represent the bank code and the last three digits represent the bank branch.
