Procedure for Generating Jeevan Pramaan / Digital Life Certificate (ver1.0)
What is Jeevan Pramaan (JP):
There are more than one crore pensioners in the country including pensioners from Central Government and Defence personnel. These pensioners get their due pension through Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) such as the banks, the post offices etc. Pensioners are required to furnish a “Life Certificate” to these PDAs in November every year either by presenting themselves personally or by delivering a life certificate in the prescribed format. The requirement to produce this certificate causes huge hardships particularly to the aged and or / infirm pensioners
Launched by Hon. PM Shri. Narendra Modi ji, on 10th Nov 2014, Digital Life Certificate for Pensioners Scheme of the Government of India, known as the Jeevan Pramaan.
(JP) seeks to address this very problem by digitizing the whole process of securing the life certificate. It enables the pensioner to generate a digital life certificate using a software application and secure Aadhaar based Biometric Authentication System. The Digital Life Certificate (DLC) so generated is stored online & can be accessed by the pensioner & the Pension Disbursing Agency as and when required by them.
- Components of the J P/ Digital Life Certificate There are three basic components of the Jeevan Pramaan /Digital Life Certificate:
- The Pension Sanctioning Authority (PSAs) It is the authority which approves and sanctions the pension of an individual. The Pension is to be delivered in the Pension Account specified in the Pension Payment Order (PPO).
- The Pension Disbursing Agency (PDAs) The Pension Disbursing Agencies process the DLC of the pensioners. The PDAs can register on the Jeevan Pramaan Portal to access the Life Certificates on-line. This account sign up facility has been created for the PDAs (Banks, Post Office etc), to process pension orders. The Agencies can securely login to view/ download a PDF copy of DLC of Pensioner for processing.
- The Pensioners: The JP uses the Aadhaar platform for biometric authentication of the pensioner. For the DLC generation the pensioners needs to have Internet Connectivity, a biometric device (list of supported devices is given on the JP portal) and JP Windows/Android Client Application Software for PC/Mobile/tablet which can be downloaded from the Jeevan Pramaan portal: https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/

Generation of Digital Life Certificate – Where & How The Pensioners can either Generate DLC themselves or Let Others do it for them. The Pensioner can register and get a JP/DLC done at the below places: i) Pensioner can download the JP application (Generate DLC themselves) from the JP Portal https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/app/download & install client application on android based smart Phone/tablet or Windows PC/Laptop for DLC generation.
ii) Pensioner can visit any nearest Centre (having facilities for digital services) like the Citizen Service Centre (CSC), the Government Office /Banks designated for generating the DLCs and get themselves registered online using their services. Pensioner might have to pay nominally for this). The All India List of such CSCs (name & address) in various States across India is posted on JP portal at: https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/locater
The Two Step process with Client Application for the Online DLC:
The Pensioner can download the Jeevan Pramaan Windows & Android client software from the portal. The client software will take care of registration for the life certificate, for authentication it will use the Aadhaar Biometric Authentication platform. To download the application, the pensioner has to provide their e-mail in the online form available at https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/app/download. This link will be made available after submitting the e-mail address. The pensioner or the operator needs download the client application as per their requirement. Generation of DLC using the Client Application Software (the registration and generation of Jeevan Pramaan) gets done in two basic steps:
5.1 Operator Authentication /Device Registration It is required to authenticate /register the biometric device (this one time only for a particular biometric device whether it’s the agencies doing the DLC generation or it is being done by the pensioners herself/himself). The operator / pensioner provide Aadhaar Number and a Mobile number and receive an OTP which is provided in the online application form/ software module for registration.
