New Delhi, 15th June 2021: The current Indian Financial System Code (IFSC) of erstwhile Syndicate Bank would be disabled from July 1 and a new IFSC code will apply from July 1. Syndicate Bank merged with Canara Bank on April 1, 2020. Now, all branches of Syndicate Bank are working as Canara Bank’s branches.

“The IFSC of erstwhile Syndicate Bank branches will change from July 1, 2021. Customers have to use the new Canara Bank IFSC for receiving money through NEFT/RTGS/IMPS,” Canara bank said.
