Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AePS)

What is AePS?

Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AePS) is a payment system developed by the National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) that allows people to carry out financial transactions on a Micro-ATM (mATM) by furnishing their Aadhaar numbers and verifying the transaction with their biometric details.
Aadhaar is a unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to any resident of India. Any resident of India holding an Aadhaar number and having a bank account may be a part of the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System.
While transacting, people do not have to mention their bank details. The payment settlement will happen based on the Aadhaar number and biometric verification. As it is a centralized system transaction can be done between accounts across banks. 

Aadhaar based Payment System

Aadhaar enabled payment system is a bank led system that permits online financial transactions at PoS (Point of Sale/ Micro-ATM) through business correspondents (BC)/ Bank Mitra of any bank using the Aadhaar authentication. This is a simple, secure and user-friendly platform for financial transactions. BuyNSwipe being one such financial institutes, facilitates the AePS services across India by providing mATMs and PoS machines.

Important points to remember while using Aadhaar enabled Payment System

  3. OTP or PIN aren’t required while making a transaction through AePS
  4. AePS transactions are supported only between Aadhaar linked bank accounts

Why did Government launch AePS?

  • The government has been focusing on financial inclusion since some time. However, it is not possible to open bank branches in every remote village across India. Therefore, the government came up with the AePS platform. Aadhaar enabled Payment System will facilitate people from far-off places to easily send/receive money and avail other banking and non-banking financial services with the help of Micro ATM and bank correspondents (BC).
  • Transactions done through AePS need bio-metric authentication. Signatures can be forged, fingerprints/ iris scans cannot be. This makes transactions safer and much more secure. Additionally, people do not have to carry their check books, debit/ credit cards with them. This further reduces the risk of scams around stolen cards and check books.
  • AePS is designed to make financial transaction easy for all Indians.
