An IFSC is an Indian Financial System Code and it is the popular term for a Bank Identifier Code (BIC) used among banks in India to transfer funds. It is an 11-digit code identifying your country, city, bank, and branch. With this simple code, Upwork's bank can route funds to any registered bank in India. Your bank's IFSC is typically found on your checkbook, or through the RBI website.
Each bank's individual branch has its own IFSC, so check with your bank to make sure you use the correct code. If you provide us with the IFSC of your bank's head office, your payment will get routed from it to your branch based on your account number and account holder information. However, this extra step might result in a delay in receiving your funds, so we encourage you to make sure you provide us with your correct branch IFSC.
