No. The bank account number is not part of the MICR on a check. MICR stands for the Character Recognition of Magnetic Ink and is used to uniquely identify the issuing bank as well as the details of the customer. But, with the number printed on the check does not contain the account number of the customer. In all the new checks issued by the banks, the account number separately printed.
