Office Memorandum

Subject:- Aadhaar   based Digital Life Certificate  (Jeevan  Pramaan).

The   Hon’ble    Prime   Minister   has   launched    “Jeevan   Aadhaar”(Aadhaar    based   biometric verification   system   for  pensioner).  To  make  its  implementation    successful   Department  of Financial  Services  has constituted  a  sub-group comprising  of RBI,  Indian  Bank’s  Association (IBA),.. State  Bank   of  India,  Punjab   National   Bank,  Bank   of  Baroda   and  Canara  Bank. Accordingly; ·RBI,  IBA and Department  of Financial   Services  have issued  necessary  guidelines/ instructions to all banks for their convenience.  To implement Jeevan Pramaan  it is  necessary on the part of banks to seed the Aadhaar  number with Pension  Payment   Order and bank account number. To complete this task, all banks have to take special  drive to collect the Aadhaar number. of pensioners and make it a part of their master data.

In the above context Addl. CGA has taken a meeting on 24.12.2014    with  the discuss   the further strategy for speedy implementation    of the system.  In the meeting,  it was decided  that to ensure the genuineness of the pensioner   it is  necessary to seed the Aadhaar number with  PPO and pensioners bank account. Because  at present  banks are not having pensioners’    data base on their  server to link them with the details   of PPOs and Aadhaar numbers,  they were advised to prepare a database  of  pensioners    account  first  at  the  earliest  and  link them  with Aadhaar  server.  For this purpose,  they will call the pensioners   to come to bank along with  their original  Aadhaar card and its photocopy  for  identification.   The designated  officer of the bank will  identify the pensioner with  reference to the PPO and KYC document and seed his  pension  account with Aadhaar server.

He will keep the photocopy of Aadhaar  Card in the pensioners’    folder for record.  The bank will apply this strategy immediately  with those pensioners   whose life certificates  are still pending  and are interested to opt for digital certification   of their  life. Thereafter,  they may complete  this task well before November, 2015,   when life certificate becomes dues.

A column for Aadhaar number has been provided in the format of master data and made available on CPAOs website.    All CPPCs are advised  to update their master data duly  seeded with PPO number & bank account numbers and send the same to CPAO by e-mail at [email protected]    at  the  earliest   so that  CPAO  also  updates  its  master  data  for validation   purpose.

This task must be completed on top priority  basis.
