How to Send Money Using Aadhaar Number via BHIM App – AADHAAR PAY
The BHIM Aadhar payment lets you transfer the money directly to the receiver’s account using the recipient’s Aadhar card number. For this the recipient must have the virtual payment address (VPA) for UPI. Instead of adding the recipient’s bank account details, IFSC code etc details this is the simple process to transfer the money using the Aadhar card thru BHIM App.
When using the ‘BHIP App aadhaar based money transfer’ feature the transfer will be strictly done based on the Aadhar card number. It will not show the recipient’s name, bank account details. So be alert and check the aadhar number twice while attempting to transfer.
