The current government of India is doing all it can to digitalise India by offering various schemes in taking different initiatives.

The India post payment bank is one of them. It is a subsidiary of Postal Service Department which will provide basic banking facilities to the customers, such as the savings account, a current account, money transfer etc.


It is a crucial part of the digital India campaign and will enable millions of Indians in rural areas to on an account, though, it is not a full-fledged Bank.

The India post payment banks will connect over one and a half lakh post offices across India. In addition to owning a savings account, customers will also be able to use services like bill payment and money transfer.
