As November unfolds, it is important to stay updated on significant financial changes that could impact your budget. Here are five key financial deadlines to keep an eye on.
Pensioners must submit their life certificates by November 30 to continue receiving pensions. Don't forget this date if you are above 60. Pensioners in India receive pensions through Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) so they have to submit a life certificate or Jeevan Pramaan Patra to PDAs in November every year physically or digitally.
They can submit a Digital Life Certificate (DLC) via Aadhaar-based biometric authentication. Pensioners can use an Android device or a computer with a fingerprint/iris scanner or visit a Common Service Centre (CSC), bank branch, or government office for authentication. After successful submission, pensioners receive a transaction ID to download their computer-generated life certificates from www.jeevanpramaan.gov.in.
