7 Biometric Devices supported by Jeevan Pramaan Application

Jeevan Pramaan is a biometric enabled Aadhaar-based Digital Life Certificate (DLC) for pensioners. It uses the Aadhaar platform for online biometric-authentication.

Using JeevanPramaan a pensioner need not present himself/herself personally before the Pension Disbursing Officer to obtain a Life Certificate. The DLC is stored online & can be accessed by the Pension Disbursing Agency as and when required by them, thus doing away with the requirement of a pensioner having to submit a physical Life Certificate.

However, to submit a Digital Life Certificate you would need a biometric device, either a fingerprint scanner or an iris scanner.
