According to the J.P. Morgan data, there are only 0.64 per capita for debit cards and 0.02 for credit cards in India, which means India's banking financial service and card penetration is relatively low. The lack of identity authentication and mobile technology penetration are the hidden reasons, particularly in rural areas.
Combining identity authentication is the precondition for financial inclusion with the Indian government’s desire to build a digital India, encourage cashless payment and accelerate cashless society development, the UIDAI’s Aadhaar national identity project, related biometric-based Aadhaar card, and Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS) was born.

After providing Aadhaar number and bank name, choose the type of transaction and verify them through fingerprint or iris scan, they can enjoy transfer funds, deposit cash, withdrawal cash, inquire balance, and other financial inclusion services.
