India Post Payments Bank Limited (“IPPB”) was incorporated as a company on August 17, 2016 under The Companies Act, 2013, with 100% equity from the Department of Posts (DoP), Ministry of Communications, and as a payments banking company under Section 22 (1) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949. Subsequently, on grant of final license of Payments Bank by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on January 20, 2017, the DoP has already  commenced operations of IPPB on January 30, 2017 with two branches at Ranchi and Raipur. It plans to set up 650 branches co-located at District Headquarter Post Offices by March 31, 2018.
IPPB is visualized as a vehicle of financial inclusion that would complement the existing banking, financial services and payments network in the country to improve overall efficiency, accessibility and convenience in delivery of banking services including Direct Benefits Transfer and social security payments. It aspires to help solve some of the country’s biggest challenges in financial inclusion and ease the burden on our banking network to allow them more time to focus on their priority and core activities.
IPPB, as an organization, is designed to leverage the field network of the DoP and is required to carry out its sales and operations through the workforce of the DoP. IPPB will be responsible for designing the products and services, defining the technology and service delivery platforms, undertaking marketing and third-party tie-ups, setting and monitoring the service quality standards, handling customer grievances, managing the risks of the banking operations, and dealing with statutory and regulatory compliances, etc.
The Postal Services Board acknowledged that the success of IPPB hinges significantly on its ability to leverage field-level resources of DoP. In this context, it is imperative, especially in the initial stages, that the persons who are acting on behalf of IPPB at the field level, have a strong understanding of DoP as an organization. The Postal Services Board agreed that manpower requirement at various levels of IPPB, especially at branch level, may be partly met through deputation/foreign service/engagement from DoP. Further, the Board of IPPB approved manpower numbers to be placed on deputation/foreign service/engagement from DoP and respective selection pool. The staff engaged on deputation/foreign service/engagement to IPPB will play a key role in coordinating and managing the Business Correspondent arrangement between DoP and IPPB.

IPPB needs about 1150 employees on deputation/foreign service/engagement from the DoP to perform various roles at the Branches.
