The Digital Life Certificate is a legitimate certificate that is recognised under the IT Act. This service saves the pensioner from having to appear before the Pension Disbursing Authority to prove that he or she is still alive.
The Government of India’s Jeevan Pramaan Digital Life Certificate for Pensioners Scheme aims to solve this exact issue by digitising the entire life certificate application procedure. It attempts to expedite and simplify the process for retirees to obtain this certificate, making it hassle-free and much simpler. The program aims to eliminate the need for pensioners to appear in person before the certifying authority or the disbursing agency.

Also each DLC has a unique id called the Pramaan-Id.
