Updating your Aadhaar card is important because the card could replace your regular debit or credit cards very soon.

The Aadhaar Enabled Payments System (AEPS) is currently in its initial stages. You can use your Aadhaar card to authorize payments that will require your biometrics – fingerprint and Iris scan.

The Aadhar card helped pave the way for digital payments in India. Aadhar card moved India towards the cashless economy we are today.
