The government has asked banks to achieve weekly targets set for the purpose of enabling 'Jeevan Pramaan' - an Aadhaar-based digital life certification system for pensioners so as to cover at least 50 per cent in next 2-3 weeks, according to an official statement.

The objective to facilitate on-line submission of Life Certificate by pensioners, was launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 10th November, 2014. This facility is in addition to the other existing methods of submitting Life Certificates. It is hoped that all pensioners who have Aadhaar numbers will make use of this additional facility of biometric life certification.

 

The ministry of personnel, public grievances & pensions said in a notification that pensioners can approach their paying branches with the PPO, Aadhaar card and bank pass book for trouble-free seeding of Pensioners' Aadhaar number in their bank account.

Various steps are being taken by the Government to sensitize pensioners and bank branches to link up the Aadhaar number, PPO number and bank account number, read the notification issued by the ministry.

All pension disbursing banks observed 1st to 7th August, 2015 as 'Aadhaar Seeding Week for Pensioners.'

Conventionally, pensioners are required to give a Life Certificate to the pension disbursing authority in November, every year - either by presenting themselves before the Branch Manager or by means of a Certificate issued by a Gazetted Officer or other designated authorities.
