How to use Jeevan Pramaan Face Android App for Digital Life Certificate


Union Minister, Shri. Jitendra Singh had introduced the unique mobile face recognition technology for pensioners. Read: Face recognition technique launched for life certificate. The face recognition technology will help in generating the life certificate for the pensioners which is required to ensure continued receipt of pensions without any hassle.

The Jeevan Pramaan face application is only available for Android devices in India. The app does not require the use of a biometric device. Pensioners can use face recognition technology to determine their identity and submit their life certificates through the Jeevan Pramaan face recognition app. They do not need to go to the bank or be concerned about non-capturable finger biometrics when submitting the life certificate.

The government has been introducing a lot of technologies to make life easier for retired and older people. Earlier the government had introduced the Biometric Aadhaar-based Digital Life Certificate (DLC) that enables the pensioners to generate the Digital Life Certificate at the comfort of their homes. Read: Generate biometric Aadhaar-based Digital Life Certificate (DLC) at home. However, this process required additional hardware such as fingerprint and iris scanners and will not work with scanners on the phone. These devices in most cases will not be available at the pensioner's disposal. The new Jeevan Pramaan Face App overcomes this as it uses the camera of the mobile phone to capture the face and authenticate the pensioner life certificate.

Both Jeevan Pramaan client software (Windows/Android) and the new Jeevan Pramaan Face App (Android) are available for download at site. Jeevan Pramaan client software (Windows/Android) will require a biometric fingerprint/ iris scanner device. The Biometric device is not required for Jeevan Pramaan Face App (Android), the app uses the camera of the mobile phone to capture the face.
