Can you please tell me the sub section and clause of section 80P under which unexplained cash is exempt?

Sir, Section 80P deduction is available only to primary agricultural credit society or primary co-operative agricultural and rural development bank. In this case the Society is covered under section 80P. But the society was not filed the Income tax return for that period of Demonetization. Therefore, order under section 142(1) was passed to the appellant.But the appellant is not aware of the Income tax notice. Due to his negligence, the Income tax authority treats the entire cash deposits made during the demonetization period as unexplained money. According to auditor direction, the appellant is ready to make a CIT appeal against the order. Therefore, we are request you to provide a draft format for statement of facts and ground of appeal.
