Senior people receiving pension had to go to the bank or former employer every year and submit a life certificate. In this process, many elderly and sick pensioners had to face problems.
What is Jeevan Pramaan Life(Digital Life Certificate)
Jeevan Pramaan is a biometric-enabled digital service primarily for pensioners in India. This is an initiative by the Government of India to help secure the life certificate of pensioners by digitizing the entire process.
All the retired employees of the Central Government, State Government or any other government organization can avail this scheme.
To ease the difficulties of pensioners, the Central Government has introduced Life Proof 2.0. Through this, the life certificate (Digital Life Certificate) will be attached to their Aadhaar card. Through this process, they can prove that they are alive and sitting in their home and their monthly pension will continue.
Aadhaar-based digital life certificate or Jeevan Pramaan has been launched for pensioners. This is a step by which more than one crore pensioners can benefit. After paving the way for self-certification, the Digital Life Certificate is another efficient and effective system.
The digital certificate will eliminate the imperative for pensioners, under which they have to go and submit a life certificate every year in November so that the pension amount keeps coming into their account.
The Department of Electronics and IT has developed a software application, under which a biometric reading device will be installed. Then with its help, the Aadhaar number and biometric details of the pensioners can be linked to their mobile or computer.
What is this process?
In this process, the Aadhaar number of the pensioner is linked by email. This does not even make them go to the base center. All they have to do is send the authentication statement over email.
How does this plan work
- Jeevan Pramaan Yojana is a biometric-enabled digital service.
- It uses the Aadhaar platform for biometric authentication of pensioners. This produces a successful authentication digital life certificate which is stored in the Life Certificate Repository. Pension disbursing agencies can use online certificates.
