With the rise of digitalisation in India, cashless transactions have become increasingly popular. We are now seeing more and more people opting for contactless payments for almost all transactions, be it shopping for groceries or paying utility bills. This blog will explore AEPS (Aadhaar Enabled Payment System), what it is, how it operates and its benefits to both customers and merchants. So if you’re looking to understand more about AEPS and its advantages, read on further!
AEPS stands for “Aadhaar Enabled Payment System” and
“AEPS in Hindi means Aadhaar Saksham Bhugataan Pranaale.”
It is a system that allows the merchants to use the Aadhaar number of their customers to make payments at AEPS enabled devices. The merchants can also use AEPS to withdraw cash from their accounts at AEPS enabled banks. Aeps is aimed at advancing the digital economy and making India a digital superpower.
The biggest problem facing India’s development journey was the inability of banking and financial services to reach the villages in the country. As a result, it could not include a considerable amount of money in the banking system. In such a situation, the Reserve Bank of India directed NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India) to create a system that can provide banking services in those areas of India where there is no banking service or it is very nominal. So, RBI directed the NPCI to introduce AEPS for better financial inclusion in the country.
Here are some easy steps to get started with AEPS:
AEPS has been designed to work even if the customer does not have a mobile phone or access to the internet. He/She can simply visit the merchant and get it done. This makes it especially useful for rural customers who may not have access to these services. However, it should be noted that customers will need to have their Aadhaar number linked to their bank account before they can use AEPS.
