For example : If you buy an expensive watch for cash worth Rs 5 Lakh, it is the shopkeeper who will have to pay the tax (penalty) of Rs 5 Lakh. So, here the tax rate is 100%. Kindly note that Penalty u/s 271DA will be imposed on a person who receives a sum of Rs 2 Lakh and above in cash. The extent of penalty will be a sum equal to the amount of such receipt. The said penalty shall however not be levied if the person proves that there were good and sufficient reasons for such contravention. You may also consult a CA.
