Ok, sir.
How a company is liable???
As per Sec 269SS, 100 % is for a person who is accepting or taking a loan more than Rs 20000.
As per Sec 269T, 100% penalty for person repaying the loan in cash more than Rs 20000.
Here the company is paying the loan in cash to the customer. So Sec 269SS is applicable only to the customer.
And on repayment of Rs 20000, Sec 269T is applicable only to the customer.
Kindly advise.
