Opening up a post office account is pretty simple, really. The minimum amount required for each scheme is stated above, as well as the required deposits to sustain the accounts. All you have to do is visit your nearest post office and talk to the branch superior and follow below-mentioned steps.
Fill the form appropriately and submit with a Xerox copy of your ID, residential proofs and 2 passport-size photos at the post office. You should also carry your original documents for verification
You will have to get signatures of your witness/nominee on the form.

Of late, the central government has authorised all public sector banks and private ones like ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, and HDFC Bank to allow investors to open Post Office Schemes.
