  From The Chief Postmaster General, West Bengal

Dear Colleagues,
Our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has dedicated the India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) to the nation from New Delhi on 1 st September, 2018. IPPB has gone live with 650 branches and 3250 access points across the country.
In West Bengal Circle, 27 branches and 135 access points have been launched. Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Honble Minister of Law & Justice and Electronics & IT has inaugurated IPPB Kolkata Branch.
IPPB offers a range of products such as savings and current accounts, remittances and money transfer, direct benefit transfers, bill and utility payments, and enterprise and merchant payments. These products and related services will be offered across multiple channels (Current Services, Micro-ATM, Mobile Banking App, SMS and IVR) using a bank grade, cutting edge technology platform.
People in rural areas can avail financial services and digital banking, including money transfers with the help of a mobile app or at the local Post Office counter. IPPB can accept deposits up to Rs 1 lakh per savings account. It also offers assisted doorstep banking.
I appeal to all the officers and employees of this Circle to ensure that more and more people open A/Cs in IPPB and come under the banking umbrella.
- Chief Postmaster General,
West Bengal Circle
