(1) The amount of such loan or the aggregate amount of such loan and deposit, is Rs.20,000 or more,

OR

OR

(3)The total amount arrived at, by adding the loan accepted during the year and outstanding balance is more than 20,000.

This section comes into picture even a part of the loan or deposit accepted or taken earlier is in cheque and further amount received is in cash which together exceeds or equals 20000 rupees.

Examples :

In all the following cases loan taken during earlier years is assumed to be unpaid during current year

(1) Mr Gireesh gives a loan of 10000 in cash earlier in last yr and gives another loan of 10000 in cash in current year…. Then it is applicable.

(2) Arjun gave 10000 rupees loan by cheque to Praveen during last year and in current year he gave another 10000 in cash ….This section will be applicable as the total amount equals to 20000. Here it’s not matter that the loan taken earlier is by cheque. But the penalties are imposed on the amount accepted in cash only.

(3) Ameer gave a loan of 15000 by cheque to biswas during last year and gave another 5500 in cash in current year …then also this section would be applicable.

Section 269T :

No branch of a banking company or cooperative bank and no other company or cooperative society and no firm or other person shall repay any loan or deposit made with it otherwise than by an account payee cheque or account payee draft drawn in the name of the person who has made the loan or deposit if :

(3) Any corporation established by a Central, State or Provincial Act;

(4) Any Government company as defined in Companies Act.
