The Digital Life Certificate (DLC) so generated is stored online and can be accessed by the pensioner and the PDA as and when required.
Via doorstep banking
The certificate can also be submitted through Doorstep Banking Alliance. There is a nominal charge for the service and the concerned official will visit to the person's home and complete the process.
Doorstep banking is offered through the alliance, which consists of 12 public sector banks and provides "Doorstep Banking" for its clients in 100 major cities across the nation.
