When Transaction is Genuine, No disallowance can be made for cash payment under Rule 6DD
Case Law Update

M/s A Daga Royal Arts Vs. ITO, Jaipur
Date of Pronouncement: 15.05.2018
Rule 6DD is not exhaustive. The fact that the transaction does not fall with Rule 6DD does not mean that a disallowance has to be per force made. Further, the second proviso to section 40A(3) refers to “the nature and extent of banking facility, consideration of business expediency and other relevant factors” which means that the object of the legislature is not to make disallowance of cash payments which have to be compulsory made by the assessee on account of business expediency.
