HRF Submission to Chief Election Commissioner urging door to door cash delivery of social security pensions in tribal areas

We would like to highlight a discrepancy in the circular regarding the eligibility criteria for AEPS (Aadhaar Enabled Payment System). The circular mentions that the transfer will be made to pensioners who are eligible for AEPS. This is confusing because to transfer cash, one needs to be eligible for ABPS (Aadhaar Based Payment System) and not AEPS. The AEPS is necessary for cash collection using Aadhaar and biometrics, whereas ABPS facilitates cash transfer into bank accounts. This discrepancy needs to be addressed urgently to ensure clarity and smooth implementation of the disbursement process.
