All the registered Pensioners Associations, Pension Disbursing Banks, Ministries of Government of India and CGHS Wellness Centres have been directed to promote the Digital Life Certificate/Face Authentication Technique for submitting Life Certificate by organising special camps for ‘Ease of Living’ of pensioners.

Now, it has become possible at the click of a button from the comfort of their homes. The central team has urged to bring certain document like Aadhaar Card, Registered Mobile Number for OTP, PPO Number and Account Number with Bank/Post Office especially if they are doing DLC through face authentication for the first time. This facility is also available to the pensioners of several other Pension Sanctioning Authorities includingState Government.
