What is Bank Account Number?

When someone opens a bank account in a bank or financial institute they will get a number which is normally termed as Bank account number.

That number is the basically used to identify the bank account, transfer funds to that account etc.

The account number is the most basic thing in the banking industry. Without account number, no services can be used i.e. internet banking, ATM card etc. because all the banking services are mapped to the account number only.
