NDMC camp for pensioners to enrol for digital life certificate
NDMC is organising a camp to facilitate enrolment of its pensioners for digital life certificates to ensure hassle-free disbursal of pension.
“The camp for the pensioners to register themselves for ‘Jeevan Pramaan Digital Life Certificate’ kick-started on Monday at Palika Kendra,” New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) spokesperson Jagjivan Bakshi said.
“The basic idea of the scheme is to minimise the hardship and inconvenience to pensioners for being physically present for submission of life certificate every year,” he added.
“The civic-body plans to run the camp on daily basis till majority of the pensioners are enrolled.
“After the registration, pensioners will enjoy the freedom to submit their digital life certificates from their place through mobile or nearest such centres/banks providing this facility,” he said.
In order to spare the pensioners from the trouble of visiting banks for submission of life certificates annually, the Centre had in November last year launched an Aadhaar-based biometric verification system ‘Jeevan Pramaan’.
The system enables pensioners to submit digital life certificates online to pension-disbursing banks.
