    The Department of Post today launched Sampoorna Bima Gram (SBG) Yojana and expanded the coverage of Postal Life Insurance to professionals, as part of efforts to bring affordable life insurance services to people and promote financial inclusion.

    The two initiatives were launched by Communications Minister Manoj Sinha here today. Under the new Sampoorna Bima Gram (SBG) Yojana, a minimum of one village will be taken up in each of the districts of the country, and efforts will be made to cover all households of the village with at least one Rural Postal Life Insurance policy each.
