AEPS – A New Way to Start Financial Transaction through Aadhaar Number Verification

Aadhaar enabled payment system is a payment service allowing financial transactions through aadhaar number authentication or fingerprint verification. AEPS is a new banking service approved by the reserve bank of India. It is also used for inter-banking transactions or interbank mobile payment services (IMPS). The AEPS allow transactions through Aadhaar and biometric authentication and enable a customer to carry out the financial transaction on a micro-ATM provided by a banking correspondent.

Aadhaar Enabled Payment System was built with an idea to extend banking and financial services without going to a bank. A person can do banking transactions through a method called Micro ATM at any AEPS payment service provider. Micro ATMs are fundamentally a bank-led model where banking or business correspondents are approved to present basic, crucial banking services to people through a simple device that authenticate digital transactions via the Aadhaar identity system. The Micro ATM machine is equal to POS hardware but comes with an inbuilt, keypad, printer and scanner to allow for authentication through biometric information (fingerprint). A simple process of incoming Aadhaar number, select the Aadhaar linked bank account and verification via fingerprint is all it takes to process transactions through the AEPS Micro ATMs.

AEPS Service on the Mobile Application

The Aadhaar enabled payment system enables digital transactions through the Aadhaar identity system, via a simple smartphone app and app also functions only in conjunction with a fingerprint scanner. In order to leverage the solution, AEPS agents have to register with the AEPS service by submitting e-KYC details. Once eKYC is complete, agents can easily start AEPS service for their walk-in customer through a mobile application.

The workflow for this simple yet effective payment system is as follows:

  1. AEPS Agents can start AEPS service by completing an e-KYC process with the software admin.
  2. A customer can do banking transaction at AEPS service provider by entering his/her 12- digit Aadhaar number, after which the app will fetch the linked bank accounts and the customer will need to select the bank account from which the payment is to be made (in case there are many bank accounts linked to the Aadhaar account).
  3. Customer authenticates payment by scanning his/her fingerprint and successfully completes the transaction, and the agents receive payment directly from the customer.
