- Through the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System, you can get money without producing any paper or card. However, your Aadhaar number should be registered with your bank account. If you did not linked your Aadhaar with a bank account the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System would not be useful to you. For AEPS transaction, you need following information.
- Aadhaar Number
- Bank IIN or Name
- It means, you have to only remember your Aadhaar number to do the bank transaction. It is just like remembering own mobile number.
- Why Aadhaar for Authentication
- Remember, at the time of Aadhaar enrolment, your fingerprints and iris image were taken. These biometric data gets linked to the given Aadhaar number. These biometric data is unique to a person. No two person have the same iris image or fingerprints. Thus, your Aadhaar number can be verified by your finger prints. This biometric authentication makes Aadhaar the perfect proof for the banking transactions. Indeed, It has replaced the signature.
- How Aadhaar Authentication Works
- Suppose, you claim to be Vijay and produce the Aadhaar number of Vijay. To verify it, bank official would take your fingerprints in a machine. The machine gives the fingerprint details to Aadhaar Payment app. The app immediately tallies your fingerprints with the fingerprints of the given Aadhaar. If it matches, the system would permit for the transaction. In case of mismatch, the system would not do any transaction.
- How Aadhaar Enabled Payment System Works
- It is surprising that only through the Aadhaar number you can access your bank account. But it is possible because the Aadhaar is linked to your bank account. This linking leads you to your bank account. The fingerprint is authenticated by the UIDAI. In response to a transaction, UIDAI tells to the bank about the authenticity of the user. Once, UIDAI authenticates, the bank gives green signal to the transaction.
- Thus, in the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System 6 institutions are involved.
- You, the bank customer
- Banking correspondent – The facilitator of AEPS
- The bank of BC – The bank to which banking correspondent is attached
- Your Bank – the bank with which you held the bank account
- NPCI – It does switching, clearing and settlement of transactions
- UIDAI – For finger-print authentication

- UIDAI may charge a nominal fee for authentication, however, it is not charging yet.
- The NPCI charges 10 paise for authentication and 25 paise for settlement.
- The bank can charge 1% of the transaction value if it is related to other banks. The minimum fees for other bank transaction would be Rs 5 and maximum fees would be Rs 9.
