In the wake of promoting digitisation, the CM said there are 4 ways of dealing with issues in future – AEPS or Aadhaar Pay, mobile phones, swiping & bank transactions. He also stated that as of today only four banks have a mechanism of Aadhaar card based payment, so the government will request all the banks to start Aadhaar card based payments.
