1. INTRODUCTION

In Meghalaya, the currently available system requires the pensioners to visit their nearest Treasury Office for auto-verification of their identities with the help of a Fingerprint-based Verification System or paper-based. This however, poses a hindrance to many pensioners especially for those who are residing in the rural areas. It is also inconvenient for the pensioners to visit the Pension Disbursing Agency due to their old age.

The Pensioner's Life Certificate Verification mobile application therefore offers pensioners a secure, easy and hassle free interface for verifying their liveness to the Pension authorities using Face Verification and other Artificial Intelligence Techniques. Additionally, the pensioner can also submit his/her Self Declaration for Non Employment /Non marriage and also track the status with this app.
