Problem: Where Can I Get The List Of MICR Codes For Indian Banks?

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) maintains the list of MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) codes for all Indian banking institutions (ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, State Bank of India, et al.) at the following location:

The Life of a BMTC Bus

If a BMTC bus could talk it would probably say “Ayyo Devare! Ee Bengaluru janara sahavaasa bedave beda”. (Translation: “Oh God! I do not want to have any association with the people of Bangalore”). A BMTC bus is a very faithful, un-complaining people ferrying machine. Despite its loyalty, it is the first thing to be attacked whenever a situation turns violent. People stone, set fire to, and puncture a BMTC bus for reasons that are not even remotely connected to it. For example, BMTC buses were attacked when,
  1. Dr. Rajkumar was kidnapped by Veerappan
  2. Tamil Nadu wanted Cauvery water
  3. Babri Masjid was demolished
  4. US invaded Iraq

Think your job is tough? Try being a BMTC bus for a day.

Moral: A BMTC bus is like a faithful pious wife. An easy target
