HOW TO GENERATE LIFE CERTIFICATE ONLINE
The pensioners across the country get their due pension through Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) such as the banks, the post offices, etc. For the same, pensioners are required to furnish a ‘Life Certificate’ or ‘Jeevan Praman Certificate’ to these PDAs in November every year either by presenting themselves personally or by delivering a life certificate in the prescribed format.
The ‘Life Certificate’ can also be generated online. Pensioners can 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 and can be accessed by the pensioner and the PDA as and when required by them.
