Do you know what IPPB is? What are its main features? If not, then you must read this article. Recently, our Prime Minister has launched the India Post Payments Banking (IPPB) scheme in the country as a full-fledged account. Now there will be no such house in the whole country where the banking facility has not reached because now customers do not need to come to the banks, but now the banks are going to reach their homes with the help of this IPPB scheme.
This Banking Service is very important for those who are also deprived of normal banking services. Due to the locations of their homes, the banking facility near them is unable to reach, so this time the government thought that why not banks should be brought near them. To the extent that this government’s praise is appreciated, it is less because we have seen very few government having this type of thinking.
Apart from this, in modern India where post offices used to be seen only in books and it’s existence was on the verge of disappearing, bringing him so close to the people is a huge achievement in itself. The best use of post office is possible only with schemes like IPPB. This is because people have great faith in Indian Post and it has already reached every village. That is why the government did not have to do much work, just had to take the right steps at the right time.
Due to the grand launch of this scheme, the eagerness of people to get information about it has increased. So today I thought that you guys will discuss more about what IPPB is and what are its special benefits. Then without delay let’s start and try to know more about IPPB.
What is India Post Payment Bank (IPPB)?

Here too, many banking-related tasks such as making deposits, withdrawing, transferring money, many payment services can be done from this Payments bank. But like other commercial banks, these payment banks do not offer loans to customers.

In this IPPB scheme, your 12-digit Aadhaar card number will be your account number, which you can use in your Indian Post Payment Bank account. This has been kept because all the people will not need to remember their account number because if you remember the Aadhaar Number then you will remember the IPPB account number in the same way. With this information even if your Aadhaar card is not linked with any bank account, you can still send or receive payments in it. It is designed to conduct transactions easily.
