Top 10 digital initiatives taken by the Indian government



Digital Life Certificates: The ‘Jeevan Pramaan’ scheme launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a sigh of relief to a million of retired government employees. With this, the pensioner will do away with the requirement of submitting a physical life certificate in November each year and can now digitally provide proof of their existence to authorities for continuity of pension every year. A software application developed by the Department of Electronics and IT enable the recording of the pensioner’s Aadhar number and biometric details from their mobile device or computer, by plugging in a biometric reading device. The key details of the pensioner, including date, time, and biometric information, will be uploaded to a central database on real-time basis, ultimately enabling the pension disbursing agency to access a digital life certificate.
