Aadhar based Digital Life Certificate (Jeevan Pramaan): CPAO O.M. Dated 20.03.2015

NEW DELHI-110066

CPAO/Tech/Jeevan Pramaan /2014-15/218-259

Office Memorandum

Subject:- Aadhar based Digital Life Certificate (Jeevan Pramaan)

The Hon’ble Prime Minister has launched “Jeevan Aadhaar”(Aadhaar based biometric verification system for pensioner). To make its implementation successful Department of Financial Services has constituted a sub-group comprising of RBI, Indian Bank’s Association (IBA),, State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Bank of Baroda and Canara Bank.  Accordingly,'RBI, IBA and Department of Financial Services have issued necessary guidelines/ instructions to all banks for their convenience. To implement Jeevan Pramaan it is necessary on the part of banks to seed the Aadhaar number with Pension Payment Order and bank account number. To complete this task, all banks have to take special drive to collect the Aadhaar number of pensioners and make it a part of their master data.

In the above context Addl. CGA has taken a meeting on 24.12.2014 with the discuss the further strategy for speedy implementation of the system. In the meeting, it was decided that to ensure the genuineness of the pensioner it is necessary to seed the Aadhaar number with PPO and pensioners bank account. Because at present banks are not having pensioners’ data base on their server to link them with the details of PPOs and Aadhaar numbers, they were advised to prepare a data-base of pensioners account first at the earliest and link them with Aadhaar server. For this purpose, they will call the pensioners to come to bank alongwith their original Aadhaar card and its photocopy for identification. The designated officer of the bank will identify the pensioner with reference to the PPO and KYC document and seed his pension account with Aadhaar server.

He will keep the photocopy of Aadhaar Card in the pensioners’ folder for record. The bank will apply this strategy immediately with those pensioners whose life certificates are still pending and are interested to opt for digital certification of their life. Thereafier, they may complete this task well before November, 2015, when life certificate becomes dues. 

A column for Aadhaar number has been provided in the format of master data and made available on CPAOs website. All CPPCs are advised to update their master data duly seeded with PPO number & bank account numbers and send the same to CPAO by e-mail at cpao.masterdata{@}gmail.com at the earliest so that CPAO also updates its master data for validation purpose.

This task must be completed on top priority basis.

Earlier,  the Govt. issued OM 28.1.2013 effective from 24.9.2012 for stepping up of pension to the level of Correct Minimum Revised Pension based on Cabinet Approval,  even when the Writ Petition filed by DOP&PW was pending before Hon. HC Delhi, the above OM dated 28.1.2013 was issued and arrears from 24.9.2012 onwards only were paid.  On dismissal of Writ Petition, SLP, Review Petition, Curative Petition, etc., the CAT verdict 1.11.2011 attained legal finality  by the Highest Court of Land.  During the contempt petition hearing on 15.5.2014 the CAT PR Bench disposed of the matter on hearing the      Respondent’s decision to implement the CAT Order dated 1.11.2011 qua petitioners of OA 655/2010.  Five Misc. Applications have been filed by non-litigant pre-2006 pensioners seeking arrears from 1.1.2006 onwards.

. The Judgment pronounced on 19.4.2012 observed that invoking (quashed) OM dated 3.10.2008 to reduce the applicant's (prorata pensioner) pension is not legally sustainable. (Also Rule 49 of CCS (Pension) Rules, is only for fixing basic pension at the time of retirement, but not for revision based on CPC recommendation).  However, the CAT PR Bench directed to revise the pension based on outcome of the Hon. HC decision in Writ Petitions filed in OA 655/2010 batch cases.  With the dismissal of Writ Petitions, the CAT Order has been implemented.  Certain clarifications in the implementation orders are pending.

not grant stay but allowed Petition to be
heard. While disposing off the case, the Hon. HC Delhi ordered on 22.1.2015 as follows:
“Dr. Rakesh Gosain, counsel appearing for the petitioners, submits that the HSC     vide its decision dated 27.11.2013 in Civil Appeals No.10640-46/2013 in Dr. K.C. Bajaj and Ors. V. Union of India and Ors., has given directions to the respondents to recalculate the pensions payable to the appellants therein by adding the element of NPA after setting aside and quashing the O.M. dated 17.12.1998 and orders passed to the contrary by the learned Tribunal as also by this Court.The counsel further submits that now the issue is no more res integra and therefore, the petitioners are also entitled to the benefit of NPA which will add to their pension amount.
Mr.Deepak Jain, the counsel who appears on behalf of the Railway Board, submits that vide a recent decision taken by the Railway Board dated 21.1.2015, a decision has been taken in favour of one Dr. Suresh Chandra Gupta post his retirement to extend the said benefit of NPA. Taking into consideration the said decision taken by the Ministry of Railways dated 21.1.2015 and the judgment of the Apex Court, we are of   the view that these railway Doctors who are pre or post retiree employees of 1996 are entitled to the benefit of said NPA for calculation of their pension and therefore, we direct the respondents to recalculate the pension payable to members of the petitioner association adding the benefit of NPA and release the same in their favour within six months from the date of this order”.

Hon. HC Madras
W.P.No.11739 of 2007 (T)
Shri N.Subramanian
Govt. of Tamilnadu
The petitioner   rendered more than 30 years of service when he retired voluntarily from service. After his retirement in 1983 the Government issued G.O.Ms.No.1108 Personnel and Administrative Reforms Department dated 18.12.1987 giving weightage of service for five years for the persons who were going on voluntary retirement. Thus, the Government has liberalised the pension scheme by giving certain benefits. The Government could have thought that by giving such weightage more persons could leave the service. The claim of the petitioner is that the weightage of 5 years in the case of voluntary retirement shall be given to him also and the monetary benefits could be given from the date of issuance of G.O.Ms.No.1108 P

EXTRACTS OF JUDGMENT 22.12.2014 "4.Whenever the pension scheme is liberalized by giving certain benefits it has been well-settled by a catena of decisions including the decision of the Apex Court in D.S.Nakara V. Union of India reported in AIR 1983 SC 130 that the Government cannot arbitrarily fix the cut off date for the liberalised scheme of pension. 10. The facts are not in dispute. It is true that the petitioner retired on 10.07.1983 and the weightage of 5 years service along with the service rendered at the time of voluntary retirement was introducedonly by way of G.O.Ms.No.1108, Personnel and Administrative Reforms Department, dated 18.12.1987 11.But it is well-settled law that whenever the Government introduces any scheme liberalising pension the same cannot be denied to the employees, who retired prior to the date of issuance of the G.O. But the Government could only say that the persons like the petitioner could get monetary benefits only from the date of issuance of G.O. 12.It has been held so categorically in D.S.Nakara Vs. Union of India, (AIR 1983 SC 130). . ž5. ..... With the expanding horizons of socio-economic justice the socialist Republic and welfare State which we endeavour to set up and largely influenced by the fact that the old men who retired when emoluments were comparatively low and are exposed to vagaries of continuously rising prices the falling value of the rupee consequent upon inflationary inputs we are satisfied that by introducing an arbitrary eligibility criteria: 'being in service and retiring subsequent to the specified date' for being eligible for the liberalised pension scheme and thereby dividing a homogeneous class the classification being not based on any discernible rational principle and having been found wholly unrelated to the objects sought to be achieved by grant of liberalised pension and the eligibility criteria devised being thoroughly arbitrary we are of the view that the eligibility for liberalised pension scheme of being in service on the specified date and retiring subsequent to that date' in impugned memoranda, Exhibits P-I and P-2, violates Art. 14 and is unconstitutional and is struck down. ......... Omitting the unconstitutional part it is declared that all pensioners governed by the 1972 Rules and Army Pension Regulations shall be entitled to pension as computed under the liberalised pension scheme from the specified date, irrespective of the date of retirement. Arrears of pension prior to the specified date as per fresh computation is not admissible. ..... 13.The same principle is also reiterated in the judgment of the Apex Court in V.Kasturi V. Managing Director State Bank of India, Bombay and Another AIIR 1999 SC 81. š1.If the person retiring is eligible for pension at the time of his retirement and if he survives till the time by subsequent amendment of the relevant pension scheme he would become eligible to get enhanced pension or would become eligible to get more pension as per the new formula of computation of pension subsequently brought into force, he would be entitled to get the benefit of the amended pension provision from the date of such order as he would be a member of the very same class of pensioners when the additional benefit is being conferred on all of them. In such a situation the additional benefit available to the same class of pensioners cannot be denied to him on the ground that he had retired prior to the date on which the aforesaid additional benefit was conferred on all the members of the same class of pensioners who had survived by the time the scheme granting additional benefit to these pensioners came into force. The line of decisions tracing their roots to the ratio of nakara's case (supra) would cover this category of cases". Accordingly, the Writ Petition is allowed.
