According to the Income Tax rules, there is a limit on cash deposits in a savings account. That is, how much cash can you deposit in a bank account during a fixed period? This limit has been made to keep an eye on cash transactions. So that money laundering, tax evasion, and other illegal financial activities can be prevented. According to the report given in Forbes, if you deposit Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year, then the IT department will have to be informed. By the way, if you have a current account, then this limit is Rs 50 lakh. According to the report, there is no immediate taxation on this cash, but it is a rule for financial institutions to report transactions above these limits to the Income Tax Department.
