HDFC IFSC code is an 11-digit alphanumeric code that is used for online transfer of funds via IMPS, NEFT and RGTS. Each branch of HDFC bank is assigned with an IFSC code that gives it a unique identity. IFSC code, also known as the Indian Financial System Code is issued to each branch of the HDFC bank by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Using HDFC IFSC code makes it easy for individuals to transfer funds without having to worry about any discrepancies. Without a valid HDFC bank IFSC code, the fund transfer process is not validated and an individual cannot transfer money online. The first four digits of the HDFC IFSC code denote the name of the bank, the fifth digit is always 0 and the last six digits specify the branch address.

For example: Here is the HDFC IFSC code of Marol branch is HDFC0000592

Whereas the HDFC IFSC code of Dr Annie Besant Rd, Worli branch is HDFC0000240

Here the last 6 digits give both the bank branches give it a unique identity.
