This 11 digit alpha-numeric code starts with 4 alpha code followed by 7 numeric codes. However, the 7 numberic digits may consist of some alpha code also.

Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) Code is the number printed at the bottom of your cheque / DD leaves in a special ink which can be understood by the electronic sensors for easy and quick sorting of these instruments.
1. You are advised not to write anything on the half-inch band at the bottom of your cheque leaf or DD.
2. You should also not fold your instrument. Folded instruments cannot be processed by the sorting machine since they may cause the paper jam in the machine.
3. Please do not put any staple or rubber stamp on this band. The staple may damage the machine. The rubber stamp impression on the 1/2 inch band may confuse the scanner and may cause wrong sorting of the instrument.
If an instrument cannot be sorted in the machine, manual sorting is very time consuming and collection of your upcountry instrument may take several days. Besides, the bank may also recover its usual charges also for collection of such upcountry cheques.
