India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) has introduced Aadhaar Enabled Payment System service charges (AePS). AePS Issuer transaction charges will be in effect from June 15, 2022. According to RBI “AePS is a bank led model which allows online interoperable financial inclusion transaction at PoS (MicroATM) through the Business correspondent of any bank using the Aadhaar authentication. AePS allows you to do six types of transactions."

In this scenario, a customer's bank name, Aadhaar number, and biometric acquired during enrolment are the only data necessary to complete a transaction. AEPS was enabled to perform basic banking transactions like cash deposit, cash withdrawal, intrabank or interbank fund transfer, account balance, and get a mini statement using Aadhaar as an identity to access respective Aadhaar enabled bank accounts of banking customers through a Business Correspondent.

“AEPS is a bank led model which allows online interoperable financial inclusion transaction at PoS (MicroATM) through the Business correspondent of any bank using the Aadhaar authentication. It is a payment service empowering a bank customer to use Aadhaar as his/her identity to access his/ her respective Aadhaar enabled bank account and perform basic banking transactions like balance enquiry, cash deposit, cash withdrawal, remittances through a Business Correspondent," Digital India website says.
