Launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 10, 2014, Jeevan Pramaan is biometrically enabled Aadhar card-based digital life certificate service exclusively for pensioners in the country. The scheme has been launched to benefit pensioners of the central government, state government, and other government-operated organizations and institutions. Jeevan Pramaan is also known as Digital Life Certificate for Pensioners Scheme.
Objectives of Jeevan Pramaan are as follows:
- Eliminating logistic-related issues associated with pensioners by digitizing the entire process of securing a life certificate
- Streamlining the process, making it easily accessible to pensioners
- Due to this scheme, pensioners are no longer required to present themselves in front of any disbursing agencies or certification authorities
Since 2014, over 353.57 lakh pensioners have submitted digital life certificates.
How does it work?
Life certificate generation: Applicants can download Jeevna Pramaan application on their mobiles or computers or can simply visit the nearest Jeevan Pramaan Center for registration; these centers are operated by banks, CSCs, and government offices. The registration process is fully based on Aadhar card authentication. Once authentication is successfully completed, an SMS is sent to the registered mobile number; this SMS includes Jeevan Pramaan certificate ID. The life certificates are maintained in a Life Certificate Repository and availed as and when required.
Pension disbursing agency: The agencies have access to the certificates via Jeevan Pramaan website.
Electronic delivery: Life certificates, once ready, are electronically delivered to respective Pension disbursing agency without any manual interference.
