PM Narendra Modi launched BHIM-Aadhaar app system

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched BHIM-Aadhaar app system this week. This will allow people to shop and pay using a fingerprint scanner.

The service will use Aadhaar numbers that are linked to bank accounts. The final payment will go through only after customers keep their finger on the scanner machine at the shop.

The machine will scan the thumb impression and is connected to the BHIM app through a smartphone.

The new system is a part of the government’s vision of promoting cashless transactions in the country.
