AEPS is a safe and convenient channel enabling payments. All successful transaction requires customers fingerprint (biometric). This attribute is unique to every individual. Apart from this your biometric travels completely encrypted using the logic and standard as specified by the UIDAI which are a pre-requisite for any transaction to be successful initiated by any MicroATM. Any terminal not having this encryption or not having this as per UIDAI standards will be unable to affect transaction under AEPS as they will get rejected with an error code as “invalid encryption” on the terminal.
AEPS only supports real time online biometric verification using the Aadhaar number. The fingerprints submitted during the enrolment of the individual need to match at the UIDAI server end to make any transaction successful. Avail AEPS service at all outlets.
