class Suyati_Customercare_Adminhtml_VirtualretialerrequestController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Controller_Action 
{
    protected function _isAllowed()
    {
        return true;
    }

    public function indexAction()
    {

        $this->loadLayout(); 
        $block = $this->getLayout()->createBlock(
            "Mage_Core_Block_Template",
            "virtual-registration",
            array('template' => 'customercare/virtual_retailer_registration_admin_form.phtml')
        );
        $this->_addContent($block);
        $this->renderLayout();

    }

    public function postAction()
    {
        echo "hello"; die();
    }
}

<form action="<?php echo Mage::helper("adminhtml")->getUrl("customercare/virtualretialerrequest/post"); ?>" id="retailerForm" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="form_key" value="<? echo $this->getFormKey(); ?>" />
