    sir what about cash sale of goods from a retail trader to consumer more than rs.10000 in a day

    • caugarg@gmail.com says:

      No compliance on retail supplier.
      If consumer buy goods for his business then expense will be dis allowed in income tax to consumer.
      If consumer buy goods for his personal purpose then no issue.
