In India, What is the maximum amount of cash that an individual can keep with him legally without paying any tax?? I am salaried and have paid income tax. Over the years, i have got back the personal loans given to friends and relatives and it is in cash…Do i need to give tax for that amount again?? Or else, is there any governement regulation on maximum amount of hard cash(currency) that an individual can keep with him ( Not in a bank)??
