JeevanPramaan is a biometric enabled digital service for pensioners. Pensioners of the Central Government, State Government or any other Government organization can take benefit from this facility.

JeevanPramaan is a biometric enabled Aadhaar-based Digital Life Certificate.

JeevanPramaan scheme enables the pensioner to generate a digital life certificate using a software application and secure Aadhaar based Biometric Authentication System.

Digital Life Certificate for Pensioners Scheme of the Government of India known as Jeevan Pramaan seeks to address this very problem by digitizing the whole process of securing the life certificate. It aims to streamline the process of getting this certificate and making it hassle-free and much easier for the pensioners. With this initiative, the pensioner’s requirement to physically present himself/herself in front of the disbursing agency or the certification authority will become a thing of the past hugely benefiting the pensioners and cutting down on unnecessary logistical hurdles.

Reason For Implementation

For obtaining a life certificate, a pensioner earlier needed to present himself/herself before the Pension Disbursing Agency or had the life certificate issued by authority where they served and had it delivered to the disbursing agency. This very requirement of personally being present in front of disbursing agency or getting a life certificate often became a major hurdle in the process of seamless transfer of pension amount to the pensioner. It was noted that it causes a lot of hardship and unnecessary inconvenience particularly for the aged and infirm pensioners who cannot always be in a position to present them in front of the particular authority to secure their life certificate.

In addition to this a lot of governments employees post their retirement choose to move to different location either to be with their family or other reasons, hence causing a huge logistical issue when it comes to accessing their rightful pension amount.

External website that opens in a new window seeks to ease this very problem by digitizing the whole process of securing the life certificate. It aims to streamline the process of getting this certificate and making it hassle free and much easier for the pensioners. With this initiative the pensioners requirement to physically present him or herself in front of disbursing agency or the certification authority will become a thing of the past benefiting the pensioners in a huge way and cutting down on unnecessary logistical hurdles.
