He said, the department will do matching of this with income returns filed by the depositors and and suitable action may follow. 
He said, any mismatch with income declared by the account holder will be treated as a case of tax evasion. Mr Adhia said, if cash amount of above 10 lakh rupees is deposited in a bank account, not matching with declared income,same will be treated as tax evasion.
The government has allowed citizens to deposit in their bank accounts old currency of 500 and 1,000 rupees denominations, which had been declared invalid in the nation's biggest crackdown on black money, corruption and counterfeit notes, between November 10 and December 30.
