Recipient can be added using 2 methods : acc_ifsc and acc_bankcode.
acc_ifsc : Account number + IFSC code for banks where IFSC is mandatory (eg: "acc_ifsc:980003598346_ALLG0009062")
acc_bankcode : Account number + bank code. Only applicable when IMPS service is enabled for the bank and IFSC is not required (eg: "acc_bankcode:12376598346_SBIN")
IFSC is not required to add recipients for most of the bank. You can check for which banks IFSC is mandatory, by implementing the [Get Bank Details API] (https://developers.eko.in/reference#get-bank-details). When you hit this API in the response you will get parameter ifsc_status. If the value of this parameter is 4 only for that bank you need to pass the IFSC code.
For bank ids please refer to this google sheet
You can get the bank id in the response of the get bank details API also both via bank code and IFSC code.
