Send Money to Aadhaar number via BHIM App

The Indian government is taking a step forward to make India a less-cash or cashless economy. BHIM App is an application which allows the people to send or receive money via Unified Payments Interface (UPI). It developed by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).
