Holders of an account with the Caisse d’Epargne Postale can now view their savings account online. How to do


The Government of India (GoI) has introduced an e-passbook service for the postal savings bank scheme. The Union Minister of State for Communication, Devusinh Chauhan, informed about the launch of this facility for account holders at the Postal Savings Bank. After the launch of this system, holders of a postal savings account will be able to access their Caisse d’épargne postale account passbook online.

Announcing the launch of the e-passbook system for the Postal Bank program, Devusinh Chauhan tweeted, “Honourable Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi Ji emphasizes that technology should be used to deliver timely and seamless citizen-centric services. In line with this vision, today launched the “Electronic Passbook Facility” for Post Office Savings Bank (POSB) systems.”

See Devusinh Chauhan’s tweet below:

After the launch of the electronic passbook function, the Postal Savings Bank system is expected to become more digitized, as account holders will be able to know the transaction history for any period they wish. Previously this was limited to mini statement only. From now on, the holder of a postal savings account will be able to access his account statement alone and from now on he will no longer need to go to a post office for this.

Here is how to access the Caisse d’Epargne Postale account passbook via the electronic passbook service:

1]Log in to the Post Office application;

2]Access mobile banking;

3]Fill in your account credentials;

4]Click on the ‘Go’ button;

5]You will be redirected to the postal account dashboard;

6]here you will have the option to check balance and statement;

7]Click on the declaration;

8]You will get mini statement and account statement option;

9]Click on the declaration option;

10]Choose the period for which you want to see your postal account book extract;

11]Download the declaration; and

12]Save it for future reference.

Therefore, after the launch of this “electronic passbook facility”, Postal Savings Bank account holders will have access to their entire passbook instead of just a mini statement.
