Experts Views:

According to the Pankaj Mathpal, a Mumbai-based certified financial planner said that the first rule is don’t panic.

“If people have small volume of cash which is in the form of Rs500 and Rs1,000 notes which people generally kept for their daily expenses, they should exchange that amount (up to the permissible limit) at their banks.”

If in case people having larger volume of cash savings in invalid currency, they should deposit that amount in the bank. The banks will accept any larger amount, but, if in case that amount is comes in black money or you are unable to show valid proof about where the money has come from, you should be prepared for consequences of tax evasion.

As Mathpal stated, “This means, not only will you pay the tax on that money, but also 200 percent. Banks have been informed to give the data of deposits to IT department”.
