      Yes. This is a nation-wide initiative by the Central Government. All PSU Banks have been asked to provide support to the pensioners to register themselves in the Jeevan Pramaan Portal.
      Please read DESA Blog posts on the Jeevan Pramaan initiative as well as DESA E-newsletter for more information
