The CSC counter of the post office acts as a ‘single access point’ for the people of India across the country. Here, customers get various services related to postal banking and insurance at a single window. Any person can know about the information related to various government schemes and benefits from the CSC counter of the post office. Apart from this, customers can also avail the facility of various e-services from these counters under the ‘Digital India Program’ of the Government of India.

The India Post offer is in addition to the ITR e-filing option available at this new income tax portal. Those earning individuals, who are tech-savvy can file their ITR online by logging in at the new income tax website.
