Jeevan Pramaan for Pensioners 2024

1. What is Jeevan Pramaan (JP):

There are more than one crore pensioners in the country including pensioners from  Central Government and Defence personnel. These pensioners get their due pension through Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) such as the banks, the post offices etc.  Pensioners are required to furnish a “Life Certificate” to these PDAs in November every year either by presenting themselves personally or by delivering a life certificate in the  prescribed format. The requirement to produce this certificate causes huge hardships  particularly to the aged and or / infirm pensioners. 

Launched by Hon. PM, on 10th Nov 2014, Digital Life Certificate for Pensioners Scheme of the Government of India, known as the Jeevan Pramaan (JP) seeks to address this very problem by digitizing the whole process of securing the  life certificate. It enables the pensioner to generate a digital life certificate using a  software application and secure Aadhaar based Biometric Authentication System. The  Digital Life Certificate (DLC) so generated is stored online & can be accessed by the  pensioner & the Pension Disbursing Agency as and when required by them. 

2. Components of the Jeevan Pramaan for Pensioners / Digital Life Certificate

There are three basic components of the Jeevan Pramaan /Digital Life Certificate:

A. The Pension Sanctioning Authority (PSAs)

It is the authority which approves and sanctions the pension of an individual. The  Pension is to be delivered in the Pension Account specified in the Pension Payment  Order (PPO).

B. The Pension Disbursing Agency (PDAs) 

The Pension Disbursing Agencies process the DLC of the pensioners. The PDAs can  register on the Jeevan Pramaan Portal to access the Life Certificates on-line. This  account sign up facility has been created for the PDAs (Banks, Post Office etc), to  process pension orders. The Agencies can securely login to view/ download a PDF  copy of DLC of Pensioner for processing.

C. The Pensioners: 

 The JP uses the Aadhaar platform for biometric authentication of the pensioner. For   the DLC generation the pensioners needs to have Internet Connectivity, a biometric  device (list of supported devices is given on the JP portal) and JP Windows/Android   Client Application Software for PC/Mobile/tablet which can be downloaded  from the Jeevan Pramaan portal: https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/

3. Pre-Requisites for Digital Life Certificate Generation
