The MICR Code can be found at the bottom strip of cheque leaf. Usually, there is a white strip of space below the place where you sign the check. Usually the MICR, and the cheque number are printed there. MICR code consists of 9 digits. The first three digits indicate the city and are the same or identical first three digits of your pin code. For example, in New Delhi =110 so first three digit of MICR code of all branches of bank located in New Delhi, irrespective of bank or bank branches, will be 110. The following three digits denote bank. Every bank has been given a three-digit code. For example, the SBI code is "002" so 4-6 digit of MICR CODE of all branches of SBI is "002" irrespective of location in India. The Last three digits indicates the branch code. Example of a MICR code: "110002001" 110 (City) 002 (Bank) 001 (Branch) So if you are located in Delhi & your client has given you a MICR code of the bank located in New Delhi and doesn't begin with "110", you can easily tell him your MICR code is wrong.
