Thanks Sanket

But in the Ready Reckoner it is mentioned that Section 40A(3) is applicable even if an assessee purchases a depreciable assets.

I am little confused.

Yes In the ready recknor, it is mentioned that depreciation will be disallowed if an assessee makes payment in cash in excess of Rs. 20000 for purchase of fixed asset. If it is not so, members please give reference to relevant provision or case. Thanks

The assessee incurs any expenditure which is otherwise deductible under the other provisions of the Income Tax Act for computing business/profession income (eg, expenditure for purchase of raw material,trading goods etc) and the amt of bill and payment exceeds Rs20000. In your case there is capital expenditure involved in purchase of depreciable asset which is also not deductible under the head profits and gains of bus/prof.we only get deduction as depreciation.
