PNB Customer Attention! 3 rules related to your account are going to change, you will not be able to withdraw money if you do not know

PNB-Punjab National Bank: PNB i.e. Punjab National Bank, the country’s second largest government bank, has made a big announcement for its customers. The bank has changed three rules.




PNB i.e. Punjab National Bank has decided to change three rules. According to the statement issued by the bank, after 31 March 2021, the bank has decided to change the old IFSC to MICR code. This means that these codes will stop working after 31 March 2021. Let’s know all the things related to it…

PNB decided to change three rules

(1) Old ATMs will not work 

In a statement issued by PNB, it said that from 1 February 2021, PNB customers will not be able to withdraw money from EMV ATM machines. If the card is locked inside the ATM for a few seconds while withdrawing money from the ATM, then it is an EMV ATM. If money is withdrawn by swapping the card, then it is a non-EMV ATM. In these ATMs, the card’s data is read through a magnetic strip.

(2) Changed IFSC Code of PNB

According to PNB-Punjab National Bank, the old IFSC code has been changed. These codes will not work after 31 March 2021. If someone uses the old code then money will not be transferred.

For online transactions one has to add bank’s IFSC i.e. Indian Financial System Code along with bank account number. The number of banks in India is very large and in this situation the branches of all banks cannot be remembered.

That is why the RBI has given a code to all bank branches to remove this problem. Any branch of the bank can be tracked through that code.

The IFSC code is 11 digits long. The initial four letters in the IFSC code indicate the name of the bank. The IFSC code is used during electronic payment.

The IFSC code can be used for National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) and Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS).

There are many ways to find the IFSC code. You can find out the IFSC Code through website, bank account and check book. Any person can find the IFSC code by visiting the website of the concerned bank.

Apart from this, on the first page of the bank account passbook, you will have information such as account number, address, branch code, IFSC code and account holder name.

You can also find out the IFSC code through the checkbook. In a checkbook, IFSC Code is written above, in some it is written downwards.

(3) Changed PNB MICR Code

The bank says that the old MICR code will no longer do. Let us tell you that OBC, United Bank of India has merged with PNB. Now the existence of these two banks is over. Customers of both these banks have shifted to PNB. That is why the rules have changed.

MICR code is Magnetic Ink Character Recognition. As you can understand by its name.

It would have been based on character recognition. It is used on the bank’s check book. Often you have seen the MICR code written on a check.

The MICR code is printed with magnetic ink on check. It is mainly used to protect transactions like a security barcode. Also Read:

MICRcode is 9 digits. Each bank branch has its own unique MICR code. The first 3 digits in the 9 digits of the MICR code indicate the name of the city. The name of the bank is given in the next 3 digits and the last 3 digits are about the bank branch.
