Aadhar link scheme to skip deadline on Payment

Aadhar Card Center in Hyderabad  | Aadhar link scheme to skip deadline on Payment 

If developments are any sign the Aadhar-enabled payments using Bharat Interface for Money (BHIM) will be even more time to be launched current  Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is updating its back-end server ability to handle the huge load on its server to deal with crores of transactions every day before the transactions with the app begins.

UIDAI has actually so far tested the application  Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has tested the application for technical reasons and gave green signal this week.

The current capability of the UIDAI is to deal just two crore transactions a day but this has to be improved to 200 crore transactions. It will take a small time before we finally put it in public domain a senior UIDAI  official said.

We need to carry out the transactions, both payment to vendor’s bank and sending the message to payees on their mobile within seconds An official said. Another for the BHIM app is many banks and e-commerce sites have not accepted to join the UIDAI platform as they lose their service charge on debit and credit card transactions.

With BHIM transactions, the customer will certainly be charged just four to five paisa per transaction, whereas, in other transactions like cards and wallets, the service charge fee is much greater. They will lose their margins but unless they also join the platform of UIDAI Aadhaar-enabled payments could not move highly-placed source said. Officials say that it will take at the minimum of another 10 days before BHIM transfer payments across the country.

UIDAI is also preparing to develop independent data centre-cum server for the Hyderabad unit which deals with Telangana AP along with Odisha. The central server is currently located in Bangalore where all the Aadhar-related data is stored Nearly 40 crore people individuals across the country have connected with their Aadhar card status bank accounts and so have nearly 70 percent of the people in AP and Telangana.
