Guidelines to submitting Digital Life Certificate

Guidelines to submitting Digital Life Certificate

Submitting Digital Life Certificate, some guidelines

13-Oct-2013

November is the month where Bank Pensioners are expected to submit Life Certificate , failing which their monthly pension will be on hold until the exercise is completed. While most of the pensioners walk to the nearest bank branch and submit the LC, only those who are away from India faced the challenge of submission, as this is to be done before a bank official, who will certify that the pensioner is alive on that date.

In 2014, the Government of India alleviated the sufferings of such pensioners who are unable to come to present themselves before the bank official by introducing the process of generating a Digital  Life Certificate (DLC) , wherein pensioners residing anywhere in the globe could connect through Jeevan Pramaan which will validate the Id of the pensioner through a biometric system and the generated DLC will automatically be sent to the bank concerned. Banks in turn are expected to keep their part of the process by picking up the DLC submitted, and it is clarified by the Government of India that the pensioner’s responsibility ends with submission of DLC and that there is no need for a follow-up, as it is the responsibility of the banks concerned to complete the process.

This boon to the pensioners, mainly for those who are unable to move or with their wards abroad, is in place now and one can utilize this from anywhere in the world without visiting the bank.

The process involving the pensioner presenting his fingerprint through a fingerprint scanner pose some challenge as the steps of installation and updating of the software every year is slightly tricky which non-technical pensioners could find hard to follow.

With the intention of reducing this pain, I have been making blogposts since 2019 in my blog https://bankerkapali.blogspot.com/ giving step by step guidance on how the DLC is to be generated including some FAQ by collating responses to queries from many official websites. My blogpost of 2019 can be read at: https://bankerkapali.blogspot.com/2019/11/digital-life-certificate.html

To continue to experience and share relevant guiding points, I have been submitting only DLC since 2019, though I was very much present in India during November of all these years

Unlike the previous years where textual guidelines were shared through my blog, this year responding to many queries about this process, I have created a video giving step by step tips with the hope that the video could be a handy reference  for repeated viewing by the pensioner & their wards, who I am sure must be helping them to get over technical challenges to complete the submission.

Due to high size of the video, I do not wish to clog the storage of all the regular visitors and supporters of my blog by sharing it but will be too glad to share the video with pensioners of any bank. Bank pensioners interested to view this video, can send their name and email Id through a WhatsApp message to me at +91 9840258014. The video link I share can be accessed by them forever, as it will be placed in cloud storage, so that it could be an anytime reference material. So, whoever wants to view this video, please send a message as above.

As this video explains the process which is applicable to all Bank pensioners, please feel free to share this message with all your bank pensioner friends.

Please also note to share your feedback on the video to my email: kapaleeswaran@gmail.com or through the feedback page at Feedback

Seniors’ Day out !

Seniors’ Day out !

Updated on 08-Oct-2023:

Realizing that it is not enough just to teach, but also we must take efforts to clarify their doubts, the session to exclusively clarify basic doubts held on the 30th of Sep, 2023, was well received with 26 registrations. It was heartening to note that 90% of the registrants were senior citizens and was blessed to get a call from an 82 year old super senior citizen on the day of the event to check whether he could attend the session , and he did attend.

Starting with the usual initial hesitation, the session slowly broke the ice and people started asking doubts right from creating folders to correcting mistakes they made while creating their email-id and as against the anticipated 90 minutes, the session went for the whole of two hours.

The lavish feedback by the participants can be viewed at: Feedback

Initial invite on: 17-Sep-2023

Towards greater awareness of common man,  I have been conducting free online coaching sessions on various computer related topics since Jan 2022 and over 250 people have acknowledged the knowledge gained from these sessions. The focus of these sessions are on educating those who feel helpless dealing with computers and the participants include senior citizens, home makers and students.

Despite the accepted and acknowledged hand holding in these sessions, it is understandable when people say that ‘I understand everything in the session. But, when I go to computer and operate on my own, I get lots of doubts. What to do – my son and daughter are busy- who will clarify these doubts for me‘ !

Don’t worry. A special Free, online session is being planned to discuss and clarify all the doubts one has on  ‘Basic Computer Operating Skills’, ‘Email handling’ and ‘Internet Banking’.

This session is free but registration is essential.

Anyone wanting to register and attend this doubts clarification session  could

1. Send an email to kapaleeswaran@gmail.com

2. Send WhatsApp message to +91 984025 8014 .

3. Directly register by filling the Google form at the link : Registration Link

Date and Time of the session will be notified directly to the Registrants soon.

Towards Greater Awareness

Towards Greater Awareness

I have been conducting free online coaching sessions on various computer related topics since Jan 2022 and over 250 people have acknowledged the knowledge gained from these sessions. The focus is on educating those who feel helpless dealing with computers and the participants include senior citizens, home makers and students.

I propose to continue to conduct such free online sessions for anyone interested, on regular need based requests. All that is required for the participant is access to a computer or a laptop {With iPad, mobile phones or other tablets, the purpose will not be fully served} and attend the session online, which will be for two hours.

Anyone in need of such ‘Basic Computer Operating Skills’ could send an email or a WhatsApp message to the below contact coordinates requesting for the same. A batch of six would be ideal to conduct a session of two hour duration.

This is being done purely as a community support service to enhance the digital knowledge of people.

For more details, feel free to connect through Email: kapaleeswaran@gmail.com or WhatsApp: +91 9840258014
