What is AEPS and What are the services available under AEPS?

AEPS (Aadhaar Enabled Payment System)

  • It is a payment system that allows individuals to carry out banking transactions using their Aadhaar number and biometric authentication.
  • AEPS uses your Aadhaar number, which is a unique identification number issued by the Government, to access banking services.
  • Instead of using physical documents like cards or passbooks, AEPS relies on biometric data such as fingerprints or iris scans to authenticate transactions.
