The government is weighing a proposal to scrap Aadhaar authentication transaction charges levied on banks by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
The finance ministry is expected to discuss the matter with the IT ministry and the UIDAI, The Economic Times has reported.
"It is being examined if a one-time relief can be provided for the period. The Indian Banks' Association has also sought such relief," a finance ministry executive told the publication.
Moneycontrol could not independently verify the story.
