About UCO Bank

UCO Bank IFSC Code And Its Format

Online money transfer has become a gift to the field of banking, allowing consumers, mostly from the convenience of their home, to transfer money and make payments online.

UCO Bank also provides electronic payment services to its customers through the NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer) and RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement) system. The RBI has implemented all these payment options which uses a special framework known as the IFSC code to operate. The RBI provides IFSC codes to each bank operating in the NEFT network and helps to classify the source bank from the recipient bank in the transaction process. An IFSC (Indian Financial System Code) is an alphanumeric code of 11 characters which is composed of three parts. The first 4 characters signify the name of the bank, then the following character ‘0’ is always the same and hence kept only for future application or use, and the last 6 characters reflect the bank's particular branch. Let’s take an example of IFSC code of UCO Bank Behlana,chandigarh, Chandigarh Branch is UCBA0001330. Considering the same break-up,' UCBA' stands for the bank's name, i.e. The fifth character of UCO Bank is 0, and the last 6 characters of code ‘001330’ reflect UCO Bank's Behlana,Chandigarh, Chandigarh Branch.

UCO Bank RTGS Form

The most prominent electronic money transfer method in India when it comes to high volume money transfers is RTGS or Real Time Gross Settlement. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) directly regulates this system. For this effect, the same can not be reversed once the transaction is settled in the Reserve Bank accounts log. UCO bank gives its customers the ability both online and at the bank branch to execute RTGS transactions. To use this service, the sender must fill out the UCO Bank RTGS form.

How I can fill UCO Bank RTGS Form?

The applicant must provide the details listed below in the UCO Bank RTGS form in order to facilitate the RTGS transaction.

  • Name and address of the recipient
  • Name and address of the remitter
  • Account type and account number of the remitter
  • IFSC Code, bank branch address, bank account number, and type of account of the recipient
  • Amount to be transferred, cheque number (if any)

A unified RTGS form and payment order is the UCO Bank RTGS Form. This renders it convenient for the applicant to transfer funds through RTGS. The form is accessible in both Hindi and English. Applicants can directly download and print the form from the bank's website. They can also fill out the form online and pay through net banking or mobile banking for the RTGS transaction.   

Things to consider while filling UCO Bank RTGS Form

In order to make RTGS transactions, the bank requires applicants to bear in mind the following factors: 

  • The bank is not constrained by the payment order until and until the bank provides the recipient with the counterfoil (acknowledgement slip) of the RTGS transaction.
  • The same can not be revoked if the balance is successfully deposited in the bank account of the payee.
  • The issuer must ensure that the information alluded to in the form is accurate. The bank will not be responsible for the repercussions that occur in the form due to inaccurate details.
  • If the RTGS amount is to be debited from the bank account of the payer, the payer must confirm that there is a proper balance in that account. If not, the amount that should have been debited along with the related charges will be liable to you in order to pay.
  • If a device fault or a loss of connectivity causes the transaction to be halted, the bank can not be held liable.
  • If the RTGS transfer is rendered after business hours, the next working day will be processed in the same manner.

Both in English and Hindi, the UCO Bank RTGS form is usable. Over Rs 2 lakhs, the bank allows RTGS transfer; there is no upper limit (with nominal transaction fees). In RTGS transactions, the money will be transferred in the beneficiary account within 30 minutes, as per RBI guidelines. If the transaction will not be approved for any reason, the money will be returned within 2 hours to the sender's account. So in event account holders have to make any high volume emergency transfer, they only need to fill out the form of UCO Bank RTGS and transfer the cash.

Inter Bank Transfer specifies that an individual (remitter) with a bank account 'A' can transfer money to another person (payee/recipient) with a bank account 'B.'  Inter Bank Transfer is a specialized feature that enables you to transfer money into a bank account with any other bank in India from your bank account. Inter Bank Transfer facilitates a digital transfer of money from the remitter's bank account to the recipient's account operated at any other bank across India. In order to transfer funds, the person to which the funds are to be transferred or the transfer is to be made has to be added as a 'beneficiary' and his/her bank account details should be specified too. You are required to add an inter-bank 'beneficiary' to your account if you wish to transfer money from your Uco Bank account to another bank account other than Uco Bank. You can transfer the amount from your account to his/her account after adding the inter-bank 'beneficiary' successfully. You must have the online banking service in your account enabled for this task. It is quite convenient and straightforward and not a time-consuming task to add an inter-bank 'beneficiary' to your UCO bank account.

How to transfer funds through RTGS using your UCO Bank account?

For ease of fund transfer using RTGS or NEFT, all the banks in India provide net banking facilities. In this way, a simple transfer of the funds can be rendered to the account of the beneficiary. All banks provide two forms of facilities to transfer the funds very easily from one account to another one and those are Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) and National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT). RTGS is preferably used to transfer high amounts i.e. 2 lakhs and above where the transactions are settled on a real-time basis and also the funds are processed immediately when the RTGS request is issued, as the transfers are individually settled here. However, there is no minimum or upper cap on the funds to be transferred in the case of the NEFT. For lower to medium range transactions, it is favoured. NEFT is an electronic platform to transfer funds that works on the basis of a Deferred Net Settlement (DNS) that settles transactions on a batch wise procedure. In DNS, the settlement takes place before the specific cut-off period for all transactions received. This is why in NEFT, the funds are not instantly transferred but take a few hours to transfer them.    

Key benefits of fund transfer through RTGS

  • Using net-banking services, you can transfer funds from your home or work location.
  • Quick transfer and settlements of funds
  • Make fund transfer anytime anywhere
  • There are no queues in which to stand or stand for
  • It is a secure and less time-consuming way of transferring funds
  • You should not have to submit a cheque and give it to the beneficiary, thus saving your efforts and timings.
  • As soon as the funds are transferred, you receive an automatic confirmation of the processing of your transaction via SMS and email from your bank.

Points to consider while transferring funds through RTGS

  • In your account, you must add the payee/ recipient to whose account you wish to transfer the funds to.
  • The RTGS/ NEFT network must be part of the originating and destination bank branches.
  • If you are transferring funds to the account of any beneficiary for the first time, you must initially transfer a small amount such as Rs 100 and receive a confirmation of receipt from the beneficiary and then transfer the amount that you are willing for.
  • Before making RTGS/NEFT fund transfer, verify the amount entered twice before rendering.
  • By SMS or email, you will obtain confirmation of the transfer of funds from your bank.
  • If your account is enabled with net banking service of the UCO Bank, then only you will be able to transfer funds electronically via RTGS/NEFT.
