It had notified that commercial banks, co-operative banks and post offices will have to report any cash deposits exceeding Rs 50,000 in a single day, or aggregating to more than Rs 2.5 lakh during the period from November 9 to December 30, 2016.

Banks and post offices were notified to file a relevant statement of financial transaction on or before January 31, 2017.

By the January 17 notification, the CBDT has also made it mandatory for a banking company or a cooperative bank to report cash deposits aggregating to Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year, in one or more accounts (other than a current account and time deposit) of a person.
