As a part of Digital India Mission of the Government, Aadhaar number is playing an important role in identification and submission of biometric authentication of pensioners. Facility of Digital Life Certificate (Jeevan Pramaan) has also been provided to pensioners with effect from November, 2014. Further, provision has also been made in CAM-52 (PPO Booklet) through Correction Slip No.5 dated-30.12.2014 4 by adding the following columns after the existing column No.5:-
6. Permanent Account Number for Income Tax (PAN)
7. Aadhaar No. (if Available)
8. Mobile No. (if Available)
9. E-Mail ID (if Available)
1:1 order to have smooth implementation of Digital India Mission and Jeevan Prarnaan initiatives, it is imperative to mention the Aadhaar numbers in PPO Booklet.
It has been observed that the Aadhaar number is not being mentioned in most of the PPOs received from different Pay & Accounts Offices.
In view of the above, all Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs having independent charge are requested to instruct their PAOs to ensure that Aadhaar number and other details added through Correction Slip No.5 in CAM-52 are invariably mentioned in the PPOs issued by them.
