Pension is the only mode of income for many retired employees. The central and state government employees get a monthly pension after retirement. However, they have to provide a life certificate every year in the month of November in order to continue receiving a monthly pension. It can be difficult at times for ageing pensioners to visit the bank to submit their life certificate every year.
The Government of India has come up with a digital life certificate named Jeevan Pramaan. It is a biometric-enabled digital life certificate for pensioners. Pensioners of central, state or any other government organisation can avail the benefit of this service. Digital Life Certificate for pensioners aims to streamline the whole process of securing a life certificate.
