Dataset

If you are just looking for the dataset, go to the releases section and download the latest release.

The latest scraper workflow on GitHub should publish a release-artifact as well.

Source

The source for the dataset are the following files:

SWIFT

SWIFT/BIC codes are supported for a few banks.

SBI
PNB
HDFC

Installation

Ruby

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "ifsc"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install ifsc

Inside of your Ruby program do:

require "ifsc"

...to pull it in as a dependency.

PHP

composer require php-http/curl-client razorpay/ifsc

The PHP package has a dependency on the virtual package php-http/client-implementation which requires you to install an adapter, but we do not care which one. That is an implementation detail in your application. You do not have to use the php-http/curl-client if you do not want to. You may use the php-http/guzzle6-adapter. Read more about the virtual packages, why this is a good idea and about the flexibility it brings at the HTTPlug docs. You can find a list of suported providers on packagist.

The minimum PHP version supported is 7.2.

Node.js

$ npm install ifsc

Go

This package is compatible with modern Go releases in module mode, with Go installed:

go get github.com/razorpay/ifsc/v2

will resolve and add the package to the current development module, along with its dependencies.

Alternatively the same can be achieved if you use import in a package:

import "github.com/razorpay/ifsc/v2/src/go"

and run go get without parameters.

Finally, to use the top-of-trunk version of this repo, use the following command:

go get github.com/razorpay/ifsc/v2@master

API Documentation

This repository also hosts the source code for 5 modules: PHP/Node.js/Ruby/Go as of now. The API is documented below:

PHP

<?php

// lookupIFSC may throw `Razorpay\IFSC\Exception\ServerError`

Node.js

var ifsc = require('ifsc');

ifsc.validate('KKBK0000261'); // returns true
ifsc.validate('BOTM0XEEMRA'); // returns false

ifsc.fetchDetails('KKBK0000261').then(function(res) {
   console.log(res);
});

console.log(ifsc.bank.PUNB); // prints PUNB
// Prints the entire JSON from https://ifsc.razorpay.com/KKBK0000261
// res is an object, not string

Ruby

Make sure you have require 'ifsc' in your code. Validating a code offline. (Remember to keep the gem up to date!)

# valid?

Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.valid? 'KKBK0000261' # => true
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.valid? 'BOTM0XEEMRA' # => false

# validate!

Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.validate! 'KKBK0000261' # => true
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.validate! 'BOTM0XEEMRA' # => Razorpay::IFSC::InvalidCodeError

# bank_name_for(code) gets you the bank name offline
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.bank_name_for 'PUNB0026200' -> "Punjab National Bank"
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.bank_name_for 'KSCB0006001' -> "Tumkur District Central Bank"

# get_details gets you the bank details from `banks.json`
Razorpay::IFSC::Bank.get_details 'PUNB'
{
   code: 'PUNB',
   type: 'PSB',
   ifsc: 'PUNB0244200',

Validate online and retrieve details from the server

If you call code.valid? before calling code.get, the validation will be performed offline.

# 1. using find
code = Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.find 'KKBK0000261'

# 2. using new(...).get
code = Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.new 'KKBK0000261'
code.get

# result
code.valid?
# => true
code.bank
# => "Kotak Mahindra Bank"
code.branch
# => "GURGAON"
code.address
# => "JMD REGENT SQUARE,MEHRAULI GURGAON ROAD,OPPOSITE BRISTOL HOTEL,"
code.contact
# => "4131000"
code.city
# => "GURGAON"
code.district
# => "GURGAON"
code.state
# => "HARYANA"

Sublet Branches

You can use the code.bank_name method to get the bank name considering sublet branches.

code = Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.find 'HDFC0CKUB01'
code.bank_name "Khamgaon Urban Co-operative Bank"

This works offline, and doesn't need a network call. This information is stored across 2 files:

  1. src/sublet.json - Autogenerated from the NPCI website
  2. src/custom-sublets.json - Maintained manually. Coverage is not 100%. PRs are welcome.

Sublet (or Sub-Member) branches are IFSC codes belonging to a large bank, but leased out to smaller banks. In some cases, entire ranges are given to a specific bank. For eg, all IFSCs starting with YESB0TSS belong to Satara Shakari Bank. These are maintained manually in custom-sublets.json.

Error handling

# all these `Razorpay::IFSC::InvalidCodeError` for an invalid code
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.validate! '...'
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.find '...'
code = Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.new '...'; code.get

# these raise `Razorpay::IFSC::ServerError` if there is an error
# communicating with the server
Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.find '...'
code = Razorpay::IFSC::IFSC.new '...'; code.get

Go

package main

import (
	ifsc "github.com/razorpay/ifsc/src/go"
)

// todo: change funcs not required to lower case.

func main() {

	ifsc.Validate("KKBK0000261") // Returns true
	ifsc.Validate("BOTM0XEEMRA") // Returns false

	ifsc.ValidateBankCode("PUNB") // Returns true
	ifsc.ValidateBankCode("ABCD") // Returns false

	ifsc.GetBankName("PUNB") // Returns "Punjab National Bank", nil
	ifsc.GetBankName("ABCD") // Returns "", errors.New(invalid bank code)
	ifsc.GetBankName(ifsc.HDFC) // Returns "HDFC Bank", nil


	ifsc.GetBankDetails("PUNB")
	// or
	ifsc.GetBankDetails(ifsc.PUNB)

	/* Returns

}

Code Notes

Both the packages ship with a 300kb JSON file, that includes the entire list of IFSC codes, in a compressed, but human-readable format.

The Bank Code and Names list is maintained manually, but verified with tests to be accurate as per the latest RBI publications. This lets us add older Bank codes to the name list, without worrying about them getting deleted in newer builds.

API Development

The IFSC API is maintained in a separate repository at https://github.com/razorpay/ifsc-api.
