Though the author has shared this wonderful information for the benefit of all across the country, still the Nation is not ready to venture into AEPS mode as many people still does not own a Aadhaar card for the reasons better known to them. It is learned that some rich people who feel that Aadhaar is not their cup of tea are still not having the card. India wants to have Aadhaar card to every citizen so that whenever a big project is launched the linking and connecting with every citizen is possible. As of now the e payments are accepted through credit and debit cards and that is giving satisfactory results as there cannot be fraud or stealing money. The OTP number to the concerned mobile make it sure that the transaction is done and safe. May be, in future, Aadhar would become more important in transacting every business and the credit and debit cards would be lesser asked.
