State pensioners to submit annual life certificate to treasury
Shimla, Dec. 4 – Director, Treasuries, Accounts and Lotteries D.D. Sharma said here today that State Government pensioners drawing pension through banks located in the state are required to submit annual life certificate to the treasury.
Since Aadhar Number has been seeded in the e-Pension system and it is also linked with Jeevan Pramaan (JP). Therefore, pensioners can authenticate themselves on Jeevan Pramaan and send a life certificate so generated on Jeevan Pramaan to the treasury. Similarly, HP government pensioners who were drawing their pension from banks located outside HP were required to submit an annual life certificate.
This certificate was to be submitted in present format signed by Bank Manager and countersigned/attested by Gazetted government servant of that state or central government.
He said that as the state government has implemented Jeevan Pramaan for online verification of pensioners through Aadhaar based biometric authentication, Life certificate generated through Jeevan Pramaan can be sent to treasury and pensioners will not be required to visit treasury for verification. In view of this and the present Covid-19 situation, all pensioners are requested to use digital life certificate based on Aadhar Biometric Authentication through Jeevan Pramaan website (jeevanpramaan.gov.in) for Life Certificate verification in order to avoid a visit to the treasury.
The pensioners will have to send the hard copy of the Jeevan Pramaan certificate so generated to the concerned treasury by post.
