Will my bank account number be changed without the need for branch codes?
Your bank account number will not be changed. However, for HSBC, OCBC and State Bank of India (SBI), you will need to incorporate the branch code into the account number field after the upgrade. The full account number will be expanded to include the branch code followed by the existing account number. Going forward, when you are quoting the account numbers for these 3 banks, please remember to use the entire new account number.
