There is no sections of I Tax Act prohibiting the payment. The expense will not be disallowed as it doesn't exceed 20000.Yes you can pay the employee.But it is better to pay by bank as proper trail is available.

Employee can be paid his salary in cash of any amount.

However, proper deduction of Tax i.e TDS should be ensured otherwise the liability is going to be on  the employer.

Secondly, proper receiving should also be ensured.

There is no such restriction. Have proper vouchers with revenue stamps and authorised signatures. But it is much better to pay through bank as proper trail is available.

there is nothing to worry about so long the company does not pay to a person(employee or otherwise) in a day an amount or aggregate of  amounts  exceeding Rs. 20000... it holds good for both private and public companies...however , deduction of tds and maintainance of proper voucher by the company  is  must.

Hi Friends,

I've a scenario here. my friend received the salary in cash from April 2012 - Aug 2013 [ April 2012 - May 2013 is below 20,000. But June and July it is 23,000] and he has relieved from the company by July 2013. Will it be accepted? or Will there be any problem? If so what will be the problem? (for the employee or employer). Now he has got a form - 16 (not e-filed; manual entry since it comes NIL return ) for the same.

Kindly help
