IPPB Launched Doorstep Service to Submit Digital Life Certificate

India Post Payments Bank ( IPPB ) have successfully launched the initiative of doorstep service for the submission of Digital Life Certificate through Postman.


The facility to submit life certificate online through ‘Jeevan Pramaan Portal’  was launched in November 2014 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The primary objective of the launch of the portal was to provide a convenient and transparent facility to pensioners for submission of Life Certificate.


The department of Pension and Pensioners’ welfare came up with the idea of Integrating the India Post Payment Bank so as to make this facility available across the country. This was done to utilise the huge network of Postmen and Gramin Dak Sevaks to provide doorstep facility to the pensioners in order to submit their life certificate digitally.

Because of this facility, a huge number of pensioners across the country are able to avail doorstep service through Postmen and Gramin Dak Sevak.
