How To Use Face Authentication App To Submit Life Certificate?

Transactions through the Aadhaar-based face authentication system grew 38 per cent to 10.6 million in May 2023, an all-time high, compared to the volume in January, data from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) show.


While putting out these figures on Thursday, MeitY underscored the safety of the application against any potential misuse as it captures the person’s live image for authentication. It is “safe against any video replay attacks and static photo authentication attempts,” it said.  

This Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based face authentication mobile app ‘Jeevan Pramaan’, and other such solutions, developed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), are used by banks, central and state government ministries, departments, etc., to validate life certificates.

The process allows you to create a digital life certificate (DLC) to submit to the concerned banks or pension disbursing agencies from the comfort of your home round-the-clock, bringing much relief to senior citizens. In addition, it is much more effective than fingerprint authentication, which may sometimes have quality issues with advancing age and health-related problems.  

The Jeevan Pramaan app allows pensioners to capture their photos and upload them on the platform to generate a digital life certificate, eliminating the need to go to banks every month. So, if you want to use the app for submitting a life certificate, follow these steps: 

How To Use The Jeevan Pramaan App To Submit A Life Certificate? 

Step 1: First, you need to download the ‘AadhaarFaceRd’ app from the Google Play store.  

Step 2: Then, you need to download the Jeevan Pramaan Face app from its website and click on the ‘Client Installation Document for Android Face App.’   

Step 3: Enter your email address and captcha code and click the ‘Agree to download’ button.

Step 4: The file will be downloaded in the ‘download folder’ on your mobile phone. Then, click on the file to install the application. 

Step 5: Next, open the app and provide the permissions required for the app to function. This will open a screen for operator authentication. The operator, who can be the pensioner or any other person, needs to enter the Aadhaar number, mobile number, and email ID and then click submit button. Then a one-time password (OTP) will be sent to the registered mobile number.   

Step 6: Enter the OTP received in the box and submit. Note that operator authentication is a one-time process and needs not to be repeated. One operator can generate digital life certificates for multiple pensioners. On successful validation of the OTP, the screen will show a pop-up message ‘Client registration successful’.  

Step 7: Click on the check box and scan for the live photograph of the pensioners.  

Step 8: A pop-up will appear on the screen asking for a face scan, click on ‘yes’ to continue the scanning process. While scanning for face authentication, keep your face straight, and follow the other scanning instructions. 

Step 9: After it is done, a message ‘Thank you for submitting a digital life certificate’ will come on the screen along with Pramaan ID and PPO number. The process is complete.  

It means that the Jeevan Pramaan has been generated successfully. The pensioner will get an SMS on the number given during pensioner authentication.

The SMS will also have the link to download the digital life certificate, stored in the life certificate repository and can be accessed by pension disbursing agencies online.
