    Circular 12/2020 dated 20.05.2020 grants relief from this compliance if “specified person” has only B2B transactions and atleast 95% sales are non-cash

  2. Kasinathan says:

    If there is a business firm (with a turnover of Rs.50 crore) who doesn’t require to receive any payment from his customer, whether he needs to provide these payment options to his customers ? His customer don’t make any payment to the business firm and don’t need this at all. How can this rule be applicable to this business firm ?

  3. Praveen says:

    Dear Sir,

    As per the above explanation it is clear that bank won’t charge any charges for both receiver and payer. My doubt is that whether any limitations to be complied for applying this term/feature. For Example a person cannot send / receive more than 10Crores rupees per Day or something like that. And another question is that whether this 269su will apply for transaction outside send or receive in dollars from US. if yes then how can they comply with this interfaces???
