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% in next 2-3 weeks.
The "Jeevan Pramaan" - an "Aadhaar-based Digital Life Certification system with an objective to facilitate on-line submission of Life Certificate by pensioners, was launched by the Prime Minister Shri 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.
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.
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.
With "Jeevan Pramaan" the pensioners and family pensioners need not visit the pension disbursing agency or Gazetted/designated authority for submission of Life Certificates.
The Life Certificates may be submitted from personal computers and laptops at home or by visiting a conveniently located Common Service Centre or the nearest branch of any pension disbursing bank.
