2 Bank Savings Account Deposit:

If a person deposits an amount of Rs 10 lakh or more in cash in one or more accounts in a financial year, then the Income Tax Department can question the source of the money. The maximum limit in current accounts is Rs 50 lakh.

3 Payment of Credit Card Bill:

If you deposit more than Rs 1 lakh in cash at a time in the form of credit card bills, the Income Tax Department may question you. At the same time, if you pay credit card bills of more than Rs 10 lakh in cash in a financial year, you may still be asked about the source of the money.

4 Property Transaction:

If you make a big transaction in cash with the property registrar, then its report also goes to the Income Tax Department. If you buy or sell a property worth Rs 30 lakh or more in cash, the information will be sent to the Income Tax Department through the property registrar.
