One of the major requisites for the pensioners post their retirement from the service, is to provide life certificates to the authorised pension disbursing agencies like the bank, following which their pension is credited to their account. In order to get this life certificate, the individual drawing the pension is required to either personally present himself/ herself before the Pension Disbursing Agency or have the Life Certificate issued by the authority where he/she had served earlier and have it delivered to the disbursing agency.
Jeevan Pramaan is a biometric enabled digital service for pensioners. Pensioners of Central Government, State Government or any other Government organization can benefit from this facility. Jeevan Pramaan uses the Aadhaar platform for biometric authentication of the pensioner. A successful authentication generates the Digital Life Certificate which gets stored in the Life Certificate Repository. The Pension Disbursing Agencies can access the certificate online.
With this initiative the pensioner's requirement to physically present himself/herself in front of disbursing agency or the certification authority becomes a thing of the past, benefiting the pensioners and cutting down on unnecessary logistical hurdles.
