These days, it’s imperative to keep crucial documents close to hand. Keeping all relevant documents, such as exam results, licences, and other paperwork, in one place is always simple, and it is even better if they are only a click away. As the world continues to become more digital, keeping papers and documents in a digital locker makes them accessible from anywhere in the world. Then, one does not have to lug about all the documentation. A few years back, Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced DigiLocker in an effort to advance India’s digital transformation. DigiLocker can store a variety of papers, including licences, marksheets, ration cards, and Aadhar. In order to help senior residents, the app has now expanded its services and added a tool to obtain a pension certificate.
As part of a huge effort to help the elderly, the Bank of Maharashtra will provide pension certificates to them. Therefore, the following are the steps to follow if you wish to obtain your pension certificate using DigiLocker:
