There are different sections under the Income Tax Act which puts a limitation on the usage of cash. Some sections create the disallowance of the expense, and others penalise the person doing the cash transaction. In this article, we shall take a look at restriction on cash transaction under the Income Tax Act.

Exemptions to the political party will not be given in case the donation exceeding 2,000 rupees is received otherwise than by account payee cheque/draft/use of electronic clearing system via bank account or through electoral bonds.

No deduction shall be permitted under section 35AD in respect of a payment or aggregate payment per day which is made to a person against such expenditure otherwise than an account payee cheque/draft/use of the electronic clearing system via bank account is more than 10,000 rupees.
This relates to other deductions. Deduction would be permitted in case of any premium paid by a payment mode apart from cash by the assessee as an employer to effect or to keep in force the insurance on health of his employees under the scheme framed in this behalf by GIC approved by the central government or by any other IRDAI approved insurer.

If an assessee incurs expenditure for acquisition of any asset in respect of which the payment or the aggregate payment made to a person in a day, otherwise than by a cheque or bank draft or by the electronic clearing system is more than 10,000/- rupees, such payment would be ignored to determine the actual cost of the asset.
This relates to the special provision for full value of consideration for transferring assets apart from capital assets. As per this section, sales consideration is deemed to be stamp duty value on the transfer date of asset, not being capital assets, land or building or actual consideration, whichever is higher. In case the agreement date for fixing sales consideration and date of registration of asset are not the same, the stamp duty value may be consideration on the date of agreement subject to the condition that the transaction is executed through the banking channel.
