Government of India, on 10th November, 2014 has launched “Jeevan Pramaan” an “Aadhaar based Digital Life Certificate” for pensioners. This initiative is in addition to the existing system of physical submission of Life Certificate by pensioners at the pension disbursing branches or any branch of the Bank at his convenience.
Pensioner can visit a nearby CSC center, Bank Branch or any Government office whose details are provided under “locate center” on jeevanpramaan.gov.in and bio-metrically authenticate his / her life certificate in real time by giving his/her Aadhaar number and other pension details related to their pension bank account.
After successful submission of digital life certificate, pensioner will get a sms on his/her mobile giving the transaction id. Pensioner will be able to download computer generated life certificate from jeevanpramaan.gov.in using this transaction id for their records.
Physical Life Certificate will continue to be accepted from pensioners if preferred by him / her.
Since the entire process is primarily Aadhaar based, digital life certificate submitted by the pensioner can be authenticated only when pensioners’ accounts are seeded with their Aadhaar Number.
