Office Memorandum

Sub:    Enrolment for Aadhaar number and its seeding  in  pension records of all pensioners and family pensioners – regarding.

In November, 2014, the Prime Minister has launched an Aadhaar-based biometric verification  system  “Jeevan  Pramaan”  to  enable  pensioners  to  submit  a  digital  Life Certificate on-line. This is an important step in realising the vision of Digital India. This facility has  been provided  in addition to the other existing methods  of submitting  Life Certificate.

2.         “Jeevan Pramaan” aims at sparing the pensioners  and family pensioners the trouble of  visiting   bank  or  any  other   pension   disbursing   agency   for  submission   of  Life Certificates.  It is possible  to  submit  the  Life Certificate  from  personal  computers  and laptops or by visiting a conveniently located Common Service Centre. Further, banks by linking Aadhaar number with bank accounts and PPO numbers will ensure authenticity of pension and other payments.

3.         All the pensioners/family  pensioners are, therefore, advised to get themselves and their family members  registered for Aadhaar and furnish this information to the Pension Disbursing  Authority.  This exercise  may  be completed  at an early date  so as to  avoid inconvenience at the time of submission of Life Certificate in November, 2015.
