    B. Pros and Cons in E-Payment Services

    1. Pros in Online Services at Anywhere

      • Avoid to reach Bank Premises

      • Avoid to keep Physical Cash

      • Save Timing to search ATM Centre while Traveling

      • Minimum Number of operations are taken to do Financial Transactions

      • Transfer an exact money with Change [ie sometimes we dont have exact changes physically like 2 rupees, 50 paise etc]

      • One Time Password is generated and sent to the corresponding Customer during transaction

      • Card Size is too Small so Easy to carry

      • Reduce the paper works like Cheque, Deposit Slip etc

    2. Cons in Online Services at Anywhere

      • Needed High Speed Internet Connection Because sometimes if the connection is slow during the transfer, Customers will find difficulties like amount is debited from their account but still it is in progress to transfer, Customer has to contact their Parent Branch for avoiding this type of problems.

      • Proper SMS Services are required

        During that transfer time, Customers need to type the OTP [One Time Password which is generated by financial institutions and sent it through SMS] if there is no tower in telecom services, Customers could not able to get that SMS for further transactions.

      • Demanding Authentication

      Sometimes, if Card and Mobile Phone stolen by theft, unauthorized persons can manage all transactions with OTP so as to tighten the Security with other encrypted techniques.

      • Avoid to keep Physical Cash

      • Save Timing to search ATM Centre while Traveling

  5. PROPOSED METHODOLOGY

In order to avoid unauthorized access, author suggested for introducing an OTP system in Offline Services also. Already this service is available in online transactions like if the Customers wish to transfer money or debit or recharge or Bill Payment, For every transaction Financial Institutions randomly generated OTP and transferred to corresponding Customers through SMS for avoiding anomalous transfer. After entering that OTP number only, Customer can further continue the transactions. Thus, this system strongly authorized.Likewise, in Offline Services if this OTP system may avail by Customers during Purchase or Service, their money will be secure.During each transaction, OTP is strongly needed for authorization.
