AEPS Aadhaar Enabled Payment System

This is/was used in few places like micro ATM to withdraw or transfer money.

Although I personally never used or saw anyone using it. It was there.

I think there were few frauds reported, so If I am not wrong RBI made changes and asked Banks to disable it by default and user can 'opt in' if required. As you are well versed with Technology and using DD, I would suggest u to let it be disabled.

Mostly used by scammers to steal money, all banks should disable this by default.

AePS allows us to pay through our Aadhar Number and Fingerprints at the merchant premises.
Disabling the AePS doesn't affect anything.
