Can I use my Aadhar card for online transactions?
Curious about Aadhar
Yes, you can use your Aadhaar card for online transactions in certain cases. The Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS) allows you to make online transactions using your Aadhaar number and biometric authentication. AEPS enables services such as Aadhaar to Aadhaar funds transfer, balance inquiry, cash withdrawal, and more.
Additionally, many online platforms and financial institutions accept Aadhaar as a valid form of identification for various online services and transactions. For example, some banks allow Aadhaarbased eKYC (Know Your Customer) verification for opening accounts or availing online banking services.
However, it's important to note that the acceptance of Aadhaar as a valid form of identification for online transactions may vary depending on the specific platform, service, or financial institution. It's recommended to check with the respective service provider or institution to determine if Aadhaar is accepted and the specific procedures involved in using it for online transactions.
