What is Life Certificate ?
A life Certificate or Jeevan Praman is an important document issued to the Pensioners by the Indian Government. It is a biometric-enabled service provided to pensioners in India. This certificate is applicable to only those who are an employee of the Central government, State government or any other government organisation. From the Jeevan praman website the Pension Disbursing Agency can check with the life certificate and download the same.
A digital life Certificate (DLC) is given to the pensioners based on their Aadhaar number and biometrics. It means the Jeevan Praman uses the Aadhar card details of pensioners for authentication. Once the verification is done, the Digital life certificate gets stored in a repository, that is accessible to government officials only. The pension releasing agencies will access the certificate online and disburse the pensions respectively.
Life Certificate Benefits
In India, more than 1 crore families are based on pensions. The Pension disbursing agency disperse the pensions as income to such families by various government bodies to maintain sustainability. Around 50 lakhs pensioners are from central government bodies, and the rest of them are from the state government, Union Territories government, and many other government agencies. Also, army and defense personnel that get pensions are around 25 lakhs in the country.
Issuing a digital life certificate followed by the Pensioners Scheme by the Indian government known as Jeevan Praman is a method to digitize this whole process and make it secure and safe for pensioners. Through this digital certificate, the pension releasing authority will be able to disburse the monthly income to the pensioners at a single platform, just by knowing the pensioner ID (Jeevan Praman Certificate ID). Hence, it becomes much easier for pensioners to avail themselves the amount hassle-free.
Pensioners, who have digital life certificates, need not to stand in a queue in front of disbursing agencies or the certificate issuing officials.
