Subject:- Aadhaar based Digital Life Certificate (Jcevan Pramaan).
A reference is invited to this office O.M. CPAO/Tech/Jeevan Pramaan/2014-15/218-259 dated 20.03.2015 (copy enclosed) on the above mentioned subject whereby all the banks were advised to seed the pensioners’ Aadhaar numbers with their PPO and bank accounts so that online bio-metric authentication system of submission of life certificate Jeevan Pramaan may be implemented successfully. This task was to be completed before November, 2015. However, status report of the quarter ending December, 2015 reveals that only 44.54·% of pension accounts were seeded which slightly increased during January & February, 2016. As on 04.03.2016 48.80% of total pension accounts have been seeded which is much below the target of hundred percent seeding.
Further the status report of Aadhaar seeding for quarter ending September, 2015, December, 2015 and period ending with March, 2016 reveals that only eight banks have shown further progress with reference to the status report of September, 2015. As this is continues process and should not be stopped Banks should pursue the matter with pensioners by making them aware of the benefits of registering their Aadhaar numbers to banks so that they voluntarily register their Aadhaar numbers with banks. Banks should invariably send weekly progress reports to CPAO on each Friday as already advised to them.
Therefore, all the banks are advised to make further efforts to increase the Aadhaar seeding of Pensioners accounts. It may also be ensured that for all fresh PPOs having Aadhaar numbers, sent from CPAO, Aadhaar seeding of pensioners account with Aadhaar number is done.
Further, the status of seeding of Aadhaar numbers may invariably be shown in the e-scrolls, Forrnat-F and updated master data.
