There is no prohibition as such to pay salary in cash. However, the expenditure would not be deductible in view of section 40A(3) in employer co.'s books.

So if one employee gross salary is 12500 and employee has a deduction of 3000 as rent and food.  Employee net salary will be 9500/-. If we pay 9,500/- by cash will it be subject to section 40a(3) ?

You can give as per above amount. No more problem...


You can give salary and wages above 10k. it's not atract any penalties...

But,
It's advisable to take bank account after 2 or 3 months for the employee. It's not advisable to long time...

Ok thank you sir. We follow the same method. For first 2-3 months we pay through cash. Once they get their bank account we pay through bank transfer.

Well...
In case the employees are can't get bank account (some of the other state employees can't have valid documents for opening bank account & some emoloyers can't give their attention to opening account by employees) then give through Cash mode with splitting and 2 or 3 more times...

Where the payment is made by an assessee by way of salary to his employee after deducting the income-tax from salary in accordance with the provisions of section 192 of the Act, and when such employee—
(i) is temporarily posted for a continuous period of fifteen days or more in a place other than his normal place of duty or on a ship; and
(ii) does not maintain any account in any bank at such place or ship;

these are the two exceptions where salary can be made in cash in excess of 10k. apart from this, payment in excess of 10k whether it's salary or wages is admissible
