## Dataset

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

The latest [`build` pipeline][buildlist] on Wercker should result in a container
with the complete dataset as well.

## 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"
``` 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 7.1](

## Node.js

`$ npm install ifsc`

## API Documentation

This repository also hosts the source code for 3 modules: PHP/Node.js/Ruby as of now.
The API is documented below:

### PHP


use Razorpay\IFSC\Bank;
use Razorpay\IFSC\IFSC;
use Razorpay\IFSC\Client;

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'
IFSC::getBankName('ABCD'); // Returns null

IFSC::getBankName(Bank::PUNB); //Returns Punjab National Bank


// Returns an array:
// [
//    'code' => 'PUNB',
//    'type' => 'PSB',
//    'ifsc' => 'PUNB0244200',
//    'micr' => '110024001',
//    'iin' => '508568',
//    'apbs' => true,
//    'ach_credit' => true,
//    'ach_debit' => true,
//    'nach_debit' => true,
//    'name' => 'Punjab National Bank',
//    'bank_code' => '024',
// ]

$client = new Client();
$res = $client->lookupIFSC('KKBK0000261');

echo $res->bank; // 'KOTAK MAHINDRA BANK LIMITED'
echo $res->branch; // 'GURGAON'
echo $res->contact; // '4131000'
echo $res->city; // 'GURGAON'
echo $res->district; // 'GURGAON'
echo $res->state; // 'HARYANA'
echo $res->getBankCode(); // KKBK
echo $res->getBankName(); // 'Kotak Mahindra Bank'

// lookupIFSC may throw `Razorpay\IFSC\Exception\ServerError`
// in case of server not responding in time
// or Razorpay\IFSC\Exception\InvalidCode in case
// the IFSC code is invalid

### Node.js

var ifsc = require('ifsc');

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

ifsc.fetchDetails('KKBK0000261').then(function(res) {
// Prints the entire JSON from
// 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

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 = 'KKBK0000261'

# result
# => true
# => "Kotak Mahindra Bank"
# => "GURGAON"
# => "4131000"
# => "GURGAON"
# => "GURGAON"
# => "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.

#### Error handling

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

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

### 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 <>.
