Office Memorandum

Subject:- Aadhar 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 data-base 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 alongwith 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. Thereafier, 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 cpao.masterdata{@}gmail.com at the earliest so that CPAO also updates its master data for validation purpose.

This task must be completed on top priority basis.

(Dilip Kumar)
Controller of Accounts

    All are grooping in the dark as to how to proceed with Aadhar Based Life certificate for pensioners although many orders have been issued . Even highly placed persons are not knowing the procedue .Whether to contact designated Banks for bio metric finger print/iris scan device or any other centre . No one is clear.
    It appears to be more cumbersome that going to Banks personally or send a cerificate attested by a Gez.Officer, Bank EXECUTIVE,dR,
