Onboarding and Training over 1,80,000 POSP with IPPB and its Insurers


India Post Payment Bank was set up under the Department of Post, Ministry of Communications in the year 2017. IPPB has expanded its strength across India covering post offices, through a network of 650 IPPB branches. IPPB leverages the vast postal network of nearly 1.55 lakh post offices and 3 lakh postal employees in every district, town and village of the country to provide door-step banking services and insurance products.


For a large distributor like IPPB with over 3 lakh Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS), scalability can be achieved through a common platform that caters to the training needs of 1.8 lakh users with MATM devices. Due to the scale and diversity, the training and transaction platform for insurance had to be simple, easy to use and intuitive for adoption till the last mile.


  • Turtlefin’s TurtleAhead was launched with their GI POSP certification course and test to train the existing GDS to become an IRDAI certified point of sale person.

  • Turtlefin integrated their policy issuance platform to the MATM app, used by GDS for other banking services allowing GDS to issue policies and make online payments.

IPPB was looking for technology that empowers advisors in the most effective way to create a disruptive, best-in-class buying experience for customers.
Essentially, creating a market where Insurance selling will continue to be dictated by a band of advisors, who if well trained, can be leveraged to expand Govt of India’s financial inclusion program.
