The Punjab government on Thursday notified a provision to simplify the pension payment for its pensioners by allowing them a digital life certificate.

The beneficiaries can obtain a digital life certificate online by the government agency by showing the Aadhaar biometric authentication, for which an amendment in the existing rules had been notified, a spokesman here said.

The document can be accessed on the website by the pension disbursing agency without insisting either on personal appearance of the pensioner or life certificate by the competent authority referred above.
